Get your apples out to be examined by an expert

FOR those of you who are interested in apples, or just very good grub actually, here’s a little nubbin of information you may be interested in. It's National Apple Day and, as such, a heritage apple evening will take place tonight (Tuesday 21st) at The Unitarian Church, Ullet Road.

So far, so Vicar of Dibley. But there's a lot more to tonight's event to push you out of the house than you might think. It's actually the launch night of the Slow Food Liverpool Convivium who are celebrating their newness with a public event to promote the principles of healthy cooking and eating while supporting local food producers, farmers and growers, whether they be garden frame or full-on allotment dwellers.

And get this: You can take along you own apples from any old apple tree to be identified by an expert in heritage apples. You won't even get labelled a weirdo.

On top of this, there’s organic wine tasting, cheese tasting and you’ll be able to sample and buy numerous chutneys and pickles.

It’s also pretty much guaranteed someone will be able to tell you how to turn those fallen apples you have just liberated from under your neighbour's tree into a lovely crumble. Just make sure you grab a handful of blackberries while you're at it.

The Heritage Apple Evening, The Unitarian Church, 57 Ullet Road, L17
Tuesday 21 October, 7:30pm

£5 members, £7.50 non members. Tickets available on the door

My tree and its apples suffer from scab. Would I be welcome with my disfigured fruits?
