November is a month for getting ahead, and whether you’re baking a festive pudding or making a start on those edible gifts, a day or two in the kitchen now will save you a load of time (and stress!) come December. Make whatever you’re cooking extra-special by using in-season produce. These three ingredients are a great place to start. Apples are a family favourite, and they’re at their best right now. Baked, stewed, pickled, juiced or blended… they’re so versatile and packed with the good stuff.
