Plump It Up!!

Written by Gaynor Mairs on 19 September 2017

Apples are a great source of Vitamin B and C. Rich in dietary fibre, they should always be eaten with the skin on. Eat as is, add sliced to a peanut butter sandwich, serve with dips or as dessert with natural yogurt.

"Life's  a Pudding Full Of Plums!"

WS Gilbert


My neighbour's laden tree just seems to keep giving this month and I am only too happy to oblige in lightening the load!

I am always tempted to eat the ripest juiciest ones just as they are.  If I get any further I might make a crumble or slow cook them with some lamb.  For the simplest of desserts, see my recipe page for a wonderfully simple "Poached Plums In Amaretto"!



About Me

In addition, I can provide retailers with regular/promotional blogs and recipes tailored to their specific needs. 

Whether it be for a new cookery book, magazine or recipe box, I can ensure that your recipes are finely tuned so that any novice can cook  them with outstanding results!

I am also experienced in tasting events and the promotion of artisanal food products at exhibitions.

Originally from Scotland, I now live in Yorkshire with my husband and two children.
