October's best: Cox Apples

The Cox is the quintessential English apple, widely said to have the finest taste of them all. October brings a bumper crop of these rosy, thin-skinned, crisp and sweet darlings.

Our quick and tasty tips:

  • Try sautéeing quartered and peeled apples in butter with a handful of sultanas until golden.
  • Add a lug of calvados, a sprinkling of sugar and a squeeze of lemon juice and continue to cook until just tender.
  • Delicious served with ice cream and pancakes.

Monty’s Cox and bramble puree

Monty’s Cox and bramble puree

My son, Monty, is—at 17 months—very long in the tooth to be made fruit puree, but as he adamantly refuses to entertain any form of raw fruit, throwing it back at me and shuddering like he’s been made to hold a half-dead mackerel, I still make it for him and he kicks his feet with excitement as soon as he sees it coming to the table for pudding. You can serve it with a spoon of natural yoghurt stirred in, or some double cream or creme fraiche. It’s also good with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, which those beyond toddler years may also appreciate.
