My apple tart and my Auntie Margaret

At the tender age of 11 I learned how to make an apple tart! My dear ‘Auntie Margaret’ (best home cook I’ve ever known) stood over and guided me. But as we all know ‘the proof of the pudding is in the eating’ and good old Auntie M never minced her words!!

‘The Lord bless us and save us’ says she, ‘that was the worst apple tart I’ve ever tasted’!

Those of you who’ve ever met me will know that I’ll rise to most challenges.  I vividly remember thinking to myself ‘I’ll show you’!

I believe I have. Just sad she’s not around today to see my apple tart (among other things) in this month’s  Easyfood Ireland magazine. Thanks Auntie Margaret ?
