Local food

One of our neighbours has some hens and sometimes sells their eggs in the summer but as the days draw in and the hens start producing fewer eggs they make jam. We got jar of plum, nectarine and honey from them and I used it on the left over pastry from my pie and popped a few flaked almonds on it. Lovely.

The apples for the pie are even more local as they come from the garden next door, we have a standing offer from the owner to help ourselves. I'd taken some puff pastry out of the freezer to use for something else that didn't get made so instead of my usual pastry I used that. I couldn't find the rolling pin so was reduced to using the boy's play dough rolling pin!
