The Apple Source Book Summary

The Apple Source Book by Sue Clifford And Angela King

Launched in 1990, Apple Day is celebrated in more than 600 events around the country and abroad. Now with Apple Day 'coming of age' 18 years after its birth, "The Apple Source Book" is a celebration of the 2,000 or more varieties of apple we can grow in these islands, with their distinctive flavours, uses, places of origin stories and associated customs. It is a wealth of information including recipes, a county gazetteer of apple varieties, specialist nurseries, suppliers of fruit, orchard groups, as well as Apple Day ideas such as wassailing, juice pressing and cider making. In this lovingly compiled treasure trove of a book, you can enjoy the richness and variety of Britain's most fascinating and little-known traditions. Taking the apple as a symbol of the physical, cultural and genetic diversity that we should not let slip away, "The Apple Source Book" shows just how important variety and richness are to our local communities, and demonstrates that you can make a difference. Written and designed with the combination of style and innovation that made "England in Particular" such a success, "The Apple Source Book" will change the way you look at apples forever.

The Apple Source Book Reviews

'Lovely treasury of all things appley' -- Bookseller 'Long awaited ... both a hymn to the diversity of the fruit and an invaluable supply of anecdote, fact and recipe' -- Nigel Slater, Observer 'A quite remarkable book ... a sort of all-in-one apple enthusiasts kit, containing everything from a raft of celebrity apple recipes and hints on cider-making, to a gazetteer of where you can find your Ribston pippin and your Blenheim orange.' -- Michael McCarthy, Independent 'Delightful' -- Glasgow Herald 'Apple lovers of all shapes and sizes will adore this homage to our most famous fruit' -- Good Book Guide 'An invaluable new point of reference ... this informative and beautifully crafted book will open your eyes. This is a book that deserves pride of place on the coffee table as much as it does the kitchen.' -- Country File Magazine 'This wonderful book will inspire you to buy, cook and grow some of the 3,000 or so varieties which exist in Britain.' -- National Trust Magazine
