Hi Alouis, I picked apples for you today - wasn't sure how many to get you- but there are quite a lot!!

Let me know when you plan to pass through Otaki. Cheers

The apples sounds great. We will call by. The chutney will be made using bought onions. I am trying to source a cheapish 10 or 20 kg sack at the moment and am hoping to make the chutney on Friday, so all going to plan I should have some to travel with.

I have access to good sized braeburn if you are interested.. And could pick on the 26th. red onion chutney - or just red onions actually- would be excellent. Swinging by on 28 or 29 would suit better actually.

Let me know and will provide contact details. Cheers

Hey Jamie,
The answer to that is slightly complicated. We have an apple tree but the fruits are small and stricken with codlin moth. This means they are extremely laborious to process for anything other than jelly. If you have good eating and/or cooking apples that are less laborious to process then I am keen. At the moment my cupboards are a little light on trading chutney - just gave my last trading fig chutney to my dad - but am intending on making a massive batch of red onion chutney soon + could make some sort of chutney with your apples too if they are appropriate. Not sure if we will be in on the 27th of April but if we are not we will be traveling down from Tauranga on the 28th or the 29th and could swing by and pick apples up. Sound like a goer?

Hi Alouis,
What fun you are having!
are apples any good for you? Would be keen for chutney of any sort. avoiding jams and sweet stuff. Next passing through Paekakariki Monday 27 April. If apples useful give me an indication of how many would be good. Cheers.

Hello chaps,
I am doing lots of preserving and am happy to trade preserves for produce. I am in Paekakariki, so if there are people around here with quinces, feijoas etc. to preserve or other veges or homekill or seafood then I would be keen to swap. Recently I have made fig jam and chutney, red onion chutney, japonica apple jelly, and red guava paste. I just bought a big preserving pan and am loving making stuff. Oh... also... I just cannot get enough glass jars. Cheers. Alouis.

Wow. I have given away apples to at least six people (many live in Wellington), pears, beans, tomatoes, and last Sunday I gave away heaps of quinces. I received some great pipis from Jamie too. I will start inviting others from Otaki to this site.
