    food for Thought Autumn

    Bob Kirby, Ken Hm:es, Bill Needham.

    Last time I \-:rote it seems hard to believe that vle had been battling vri th record rainfall - and nm.,r, a fe'" weeks later, we havE' enjoyed one of the best summers for a number of years. Day after day of glorious SU..'1shine has brought the fruits of the harvest to us, and the time. to plan the best use of this produce.

    he apple cYop does not look over promising, but the plum trees are laden with ripening fruit. After the initial plum crumble, plum uies, and plum mousse (last issues recipe) perhaps you can find an hour to store some of the fruits in your freezers, and others to make into this nuick ::md easy chutney - a splendid enlivener of cold beef, or small pots ITk'l....!.ce a ideal gift when 1 just ;:::. little something' is required.
