This celeriac and apple soup follows on the heels of last month’s plain old celeriac soup, and is using up some of the apple harvest. This recipe comes from Angela Hartnett on the Guardian website. I’ve never used apples in a soup, but their sweetness goes well with the earthy er… celery-ness of the celeriac, and the flavours balance really well.

Autumn brings a glut of apples, and the search for recipes to use them up in. This recipe for nutty apple loaf comes from the Hummingbird Bakery recipe book. It’s a lovely tea loaf, slightly spiced, with some cheeky chocolate pieces thrown in. The recipe calls for mixed nuts; I used walnuts, hazelnuts and almonds.

Christmas is on its way! Forget cinnamon/pine scented candles, absolutely the most Christmassy smell I’ve ever smelled is this spiced plum chutney bubbling away on the stove. It’s got figs, oranges, cranberries and cinnamon (and plums!) and is Christmassy enough to inspire Scrooge himself to start singing “Mary’s Boy Child”. I adapted the recipe from one at Allotment Growing Recipes, but there’s also a great-looking one at Domestic Sluttery that I’ll try one day.
