At the end of January we were able to join in at the ‘Random Apple Company’s Wassailing’ Event in Swanscoe. We currently supply some of their delicious seasonal Elderflower Cordial and Preserves.
They produce their own Random Apple Juice from their orchards and welcome donations of local apples in return for bottles of pasteurised juice.
The event included Morris Dancers, bonfire, singing and ‘blessing’ the apple orchard for next season’s yield. We hung bread on the branches and ended the evening with a fantastic shared buffet and hot mulled ‘Random’ apple juice. The pheasant and chestnut casserole was superb.
Dressing up was optional but as you can see a great effort was made by some to enjoy the theme!
Despite the rain we all had a great time. Many thanks to Sarah for the invite.
