Abundance Fruit Day – apple pressing

Kids’ apples hanging on Dukes Meadows’ magic tree

We celebrated Apple Day at Dukes Meadows this year, with a special tree to hang decorations, apple pressing, bobbing and peeling, and loads of chutneys, jams and jellies.

Once the apple juice was pressed out of the fruit, a huge apple pulp cake was left for the pigs. Or, since there are few pigs in Chiswick, the compost heap.

Sam Sender guided a foraging walk around the area.  And even the coffee stall entered into the spirit of the day and made apple-shaped coffee.
