Here is another recipe from good friend Juliet Greenwood.
This is a recipe from the era of the First World War, which I discovered when researching the recipes for 'We That are Left'. I loved making this! It's a light and tasty way of using cooking apples, or eaters that are starting to go. It's bit like an apple soufflé. I added a little grated lemon rind to the apples for an extra zing. Lovely chilled for a summer's evening or warm as comfort food on a rainy day.
