Eat an apple straight from a tree

Duration:Half Day
Activity:For kids - things to do before you're 11¾

Acorn Bank at Temple Sowerby at Penrith has an annual Apple Day festival so who better to ask about the best apples for eating than their gardeners? Sizergh Castle’s another great place for apple-themed events.

So what can you do with your hoard of fresh apples? Apart from gobbling the lot, you could make a homemade apple pie or crumble! It will be extra yummy with the apples you picked yourself. You could even make an easy peasy apple sauce to go with a Sunday roast chicken. Just be sure to check if the apples are eating apples or cooking apples (you might want to ask an adult to help you) - if you eat raw cooking apples they might give you a tummy ache!
