Every year 21st October marks Apple Day in the UK with communities around the land coming together to celebrate this wonderful fruit - you might like to make this delicious dessert to mark it!
These samosas are one of our of favourite desserts at Demuths Cookery School. They're easy to put together and look so delightful on the plate, especially when served with a bit of Greek yogurt and honey.
Apple and Pear Saffron Samosas
Saffron: Saffron threads are the red stamen of the crocus, grown from the Mediterranean to the mountains of Kashmir. Saffron has to be picked by hand making it one of the most expensive spices in the World. It colours food a brilliant gold, is very aromatic verging on the medicinal and should be used sparingly. Make sure you buy the threads, usually sold in tiny clear plastic boxes. The saffron powder is often not pure.
Vanilla Sugar is sugar that has had vanilla pods stored in it. If you don’t have vanilla sugar add a teaspoon of vanilla extract.
Filo: We like French filo ‘Feuilles de Filo’ made by sofra brick, available at Waitrose.
