This is not a good year for apples. Not in my garden anyway. Last year a tree literally split its trunk under the weight of the harvest and this year the trees have taken the year off.
However, if you manage your apple trees better than I do and are wondering what to do with all the fruit, how about having a go at cider without a press?
At the rather eclectic Sutton Elms website, there are full instructions on how to make cider by putting apples in the freezer.
If you try it, let me know how it goes.
