In the last surge of winter, when hearty braised meats simmer away in the kitchen, as they have for months, and the spring’s bounty still seems weeks away, fresh, seasonal vegetables — and time in the garden — can seem like a distant memory. But they don’t have to be.

Our own Apple Juice & Ballymaloe Mulled Apple Recipe

On the Ballymaloe Farm 5 years ago, we planted a 2 acre orchard of cider apples, mainly Dabinett but also Crimson Bramley, Santana, Topas, Delles Bell and Dellinquo.  Other varietals grow across the farm, in the walled Garden and adjacent to the aptly named Orchard Cottage.  

Mild weather throughout the year allowed perfect growing conditions for Apples across Ireland’s orchards, so having yielded such an abundant crop this year there were endless possibilities of uses for the apples.
