But apple trees can be prolific, even small ones but the joy is that apples are so versatile. Great in salads and in cooking. Here are a few ideas.
This simple apple tart is a fantastic and very easy dessert.
Or if you want something a bit more involved, tarte tatin is the ultimate in apple tarts. Buttery apples with crisp pastry. Delicious.
But don't just stick with desserts. Salads really benefit from a mix of sweet and savoury and different textures. Apple gives crunch and delicious tangy sweetness which works well with cheeses like in this Stilton salad.
It's also great with cheese on artisan bread toast.
I don't have masses of smoothies but when I do, I tend to have them instead of breakfast as they are quite filling. This carrot, apple and ginger smoothie is one of my favourites.
Fruit salsa might sound like a really crazy idea but actually it's a fun way to have a dessert which is mainly fruit.
Lovely with some crunchy vanilla tortillas.
