Apple Day

Escaping to Cornwall for a happy week's respite, we were very pleased to find that our village of Pendeen was celebrating Apple Day in it's community centre. They hold a regular Farmer's market but that morning we were lucky enough to enjoy an extra treat..

These unusual varieties, some only found in Cornwall, came from the orchard of a local manor house. I love the colours and rich scents of old-fashioned apples.

The 'Apple Man' also known as Paul, had a wonderful machine which cored, peeled and sliced. We were entranced and I now have another item added to my ever-growing wants list!

Of course there was more to the market than apples and I always find a Farmers' Market is good place to shop.
I enjoyed having a taste-

We brought back some of this most delicious Cheddar for Sam-

We choose from the freshest of vegetables for our supper that evening-

and succumbed to temptation of freshly baked treats.

Aren't these hand-knitted lambs enchanting?

What a lovely way to spend a rather damp October morning!
