There are an incredible number of apple varieties, over 7,000 in fact! With so many varieties it is easy to see why they are so popular as there is one for everyone to enjoy, sharp, sweet, crunchy, softer fleshed. They are very versatile as well, they can be used in sweet or savoury dishes or just eaten on their own.


Parsnips belong to the umbelliferae family which also contains carrots and celeriac. Their sweet and fragrant taste go wonderfully in earthy winter dishes as well as sweet dishes.
