- Published on Jul 26, 2019
- Today, it looks like we’ve stumbled across Mrs Crocombe at rest knitting some dishcloths. In actual fact, she’s hard at work; these dishcloths help to produce a rather interesting texture to today’s recipe - Fashionable Apple Dumplings.

Apples (such as Cox's or Russets)
Marmalade (Orange or lemon)
And for the suet crust:
A generous pinch of salt
You will also need some knitted dishcloths.
Start by making your suet crust (a type of pastry containing suet). This can be made with 225g flour, 85g suet, a generous pinch of salt and some cold water. Gradually mix the ingredients in a bowl until you have a smooth, elastic dough.
Next, peel and core the apples. Place a few spoonfuls of your favourite marmalade into the hole in the middle of each apple.
Roll out your suet crust dough until it’s thin, then place an apple in the middle and wrap the pastry entirely around it. Cut off any excess, and make sure the suet crust completely seals around the apple until it’s smooth all over. Wrap the apple in a dishcloth that has been coated with melted butter, and tie the top with string to ensure that it’s tightly wrapped. Repeat this process for each apple.
To cook, place the apple parcels into a pan of already boiling water (otherwise the apples will disintegrate). Keep it at a simmer for just under an hour depending on the size of the apples. Once cooked, removed the apple parcels from the pan and carefully remove the cloth. Serve on their own or with cream.
