There’s something rather comforting about cooked apples, maybe it reminds me of winter puddings when I was growing up, or maybe it’s just the soft, sweetness that’s easy to eat.
My favourite apple at the moment is the Mahana, it has a juicy, sweet flavour that’s not too sweet or sour. It looks like the apple that the witch gave Snow White.
