    Instead of a plain old apple pie I cook the apples with some cinnamon and plenty of raisins. Makes a delicious pie filling

    I love them soaked in whisky, then used in the base of a steamed sponge pudding, served with a whisky sauce and custard

    I use them in one of my favourite family recipes: Grandma’s rough cake as well as in scones, biscuits and bread and butter pudding. Trouble is I eat nearly as many as I put in the bowl! 🙂
