Ideas for preserving autumn fruits
Whether you have had the satisfaction of picking and harvesting Autumn fruit as mentioned in our previous blog, MOLLY MAID suggests spending some time being productive in the kitchen!
It is the season where cooks hurry to preserve the flavours of the passing year for their enjoyment throughout the dark and dreary months. A spicy plum chutney enjoyed with a Christmas ham, or an apple jelly on a slice of creamy brie, evokes memories of the bygone summer.
Autumn is as much as time for preserving as well as a time for celebration with Harvest Festival just around the corner. Grace the table with savoury and sweet sauces from your crop of autumnal fruits and berries and use them accompaniments with meats and cheeses or even as homemade gifts.
So, as you reach for your apron, tackle your bounty and try some of the below recipe ideas from MOLLY MAID, the professional housecleaners, on how to deal with the overwhelming amount of fruit before the worms do!
