Foxlowe Pixies Come out of Hibernation

The Pixie apples, a late-eating variety, were put away last autumn to hibernate in a cellar, where they get ideal storage conditions (low temperature and humidity).  The plan was to sell them in the cafe when they were fully ripened and ready to eat. NOT MANY LEFT NOW, SO CATCH THEM WHILE THEY’RE STILL YOUNG AND SWEET.

Sadly, their sleep was disrupted when the cellar flooded and they had to be transferred to an attic, which was equally cool but somewhat drier.  This has meant that the Pixies, although perfectly edible, are just a bit wrinkled.

For that reason, we won’t be charging for them, although if anyone wants to make a donation for those they eat, it will be most welcome.
