    • I have been brewing for decades and cooking... well... we have a growing family so that's a necessity, especially the traditional English Sunday roast dinner. If like us, you cook a roast regularly then try the roasting calculator which will work out all your cooking times for you perfectly. This is what we use to keep things simple.
    • Most of my brewing is now done using produce from our orchard, and harvest season usually means all hands to the pumps to bring in the damsons, plumbs, pears and apples. So if you want to know what to do with your apples, pears, damsons or plums have a go at one of the recipes below - they're simple, easy going and you won't be throwing away rotted fruit every year!
