Over the next few weeks we will be finding out all about Autumn!
Cooking with Dilys
Dilys has been busy collecting fruit from our orchard and wild area.
What tasty treat can we make from the
ingredients she has found?
Blackberry and apple pies
Place the sliced apples in a pan with the sugar and cook gently over a medium heat for 5-6 minutes, or until the apples are softened. Set aside to cool, then mix in the blackberries.
Preheat the oven to 180C/355F/Gas 4.
Divide the apple and blackberry mixture, leaving aside any juices, among the puff pastry rectangles, leaving a 2cm/1in border around the edges of the pastry..
Brush the edges of the filled pastry layer with the beaten egg, then carefully lover the pastry on top. Seal the edgesby using a fork, then brush the pastry all over with the beaten egg. Sprinkle over some caster sugar and bake the pastries for 20 minutes, or until the pastry is golden-brown and puffy.
Lets explore how a kite flies. How can you make it fly higher?
