Time to preserve

End of summer vegetables are ripening at a great rate - tomatoes, cucumbers and zucchini mostly.
Cucumber pickles
The few apples are also starting to fall from the trees.  The first are prinzenapfel from Woodbridge Fruit Trees.  Here's what they say: Literally translates “Apple of the Prince” but known by many other Germanic names, widely grown in Europe. It has a characteristic long shape, orange/red in colour with rich dense aromatic flesh. Keeps well. On dwarfing M26 rootstock.
These apples are each about 11cm in diameter.
