In celebration of the WTO ban to over turn the Aussie ban on New Zealand apples heres some good recipe for Apples  . We have chose  aussie recipes because their apples are so bad that their recipe must be really good to make them taste good. 

Apple Crumble 


7 large green apples
1/2 cup caster sugar
1tsp cinnamon (ground)
1 cup plain flour
3/4 cup (packed) dark brown sugar
3/4 cup rolled oats
3/4 cup coconut
1 tbsp cinnamon (ground)
2 tsp nutmeg (ground)
2/3 cup butter (melted)
2 tsp vanilla essence

Preparation method

1.APPLE MIX ( seriously  use NZ  apples if you want a really good crumble!) 
2.Peel and core apples, then cut into rough 1-2cm cubes. Place apples in large saucepan and cover with water. Simmer covered with lid on high until apples are tender but not too soft (usually 5-10mins once water is simmering). Drain apples well and place in large bowl
3.Combine caster sugar and cinnamon (ensures even spread), then toss through the apples.
5.Combine flour, brown sugar, rolled oats, coconut, cinnamon and nutmeg in a large bowl until evenly mixed through.
6.Melt butter (do not burn or boil it) and add vanilla essence to butter, stir through.
7.Add butter mix to dry ingredients and mix well using a fork. Ensure all ingredients are moist and mixture has a crumbly texture.
9.Place apple mix evenly in medium casserole dish. Spread crumble mix over top of apple. Bake at 180 degrees C for 30-40minutes, or until crumble topping is slightly browned.
10.Serve with vanilla icecream, cream, or custard and ENJOY!


1-1/2 cups chilled applesauce
finely grated peel of (1) orange
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1/2 c. whipped cream
candied orange peel

In a large bowl, stir applesauce with peel and vanilla until well blended. In a seperate bowl beat whipped cream, until it holds soft peaks. Gently fold cream into applesauce mixture. Serve with candied orange peel. Serves 4 * applesauce works best when chilled * Simple to make .... and very good !

    Indeed, the ockers should let the NZ 'organic' apple in to Oz. The use of these practices in Hawkes Bay, the use if lime sulfur ... aerosols of which are hydrogen sulfide, sulfur dioxide plus sulfuric acid have resulted (oh, plus the use of fish oils and bacillis subtillis)... in the worst health statistics for any region in NZ over just ten years of use ... but relative pesticide residue free fruit.
    It has resulted in the Regional Council permitting off site spray drift on a massive scale ... & all are respiratory irritants.
    Why would you want to import such practice in to your country?
    Albeit you may well want to import the fruit from such.
    Rather sadly, it is the academic runts of those successful professionals, the Drs, accountants, lawyers who were able to purchase those orchards, those
    holes in to which monies are thrown, that are pursuing this approach ... & it is this factor that is providing them protection.
    Also, of course, the notion that low socio economic areas are more prone to respiratory issues than other areas ... unfortunate really that most such areas adjoin these
    organic' areas.
    The Regional Council are hiding behing this ... but then, vested interests ....

    Oh, & don't buy a car from the Bay, the strong, initially caustic nature of this spray is pretty good at stripping paint and rust becomes rather difficult to stop.
