apples – from tree to pie

  1. Codlin Moth – In about October find a small glass jar and put into it 1 Tbsp treacle & 1 Tbsp vinegar and top it up with water. Hang it as close to the centre of the tree as possible in a mandarin or onion bag. Keep it topped up with water over the next couple of months. The moths go for a drink and drown/get stuck. This method has worked well for me. Some people use a mix of 1 part port and 9 parts water, but that seems like a waste of port. Another thing you can do is to grow peppermint geranium under your tree; the Codlin moths don’t like it.


  2. I love your words on top of your pastry! Right, I’m going to make a pie. We’ve got an apple tree too with 10 apples on it. We ate the first one last night. It was delicious.


  3. fantastic pie – yum – and love the writing on top – my mother-in-law does the same – writes the initials or names of children at the meal – is it traditional?
