The Apple Source Book is a celebration of the 2,000 or more varieties of apple grown in the UK, with their distinctive flavors, 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, and 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.
