Handy Household Tip

These little beauties are used to bake apples in the microwave. Just prepare the apples as you normally would (ie core, stuff with sultanas, add dab of butter and slit skins) place the apples inside containers and turn on microwave. I used them for the first time yesterday and followed the instructions - had the most delicious apples in less than 4 minutes. Saves the fuel used to bake in oven. I bought these through a well known catalogue whose head office is up in the Lake District.

AHHH!!!!! The Lake land people! I will look out for those as it will be most useful to microwave apples instead of baking in expensive oven.

when we were over in February that is one place I insisted we visited, luckily my mother lives not too far away from there.

Great store, just a bit expensive to ship things over to Canada.

That sounds wonderful, I'll have to look out over here. Hope they have them. Hubs loves baked apples.

Hi Lindsay - I've looked at those apple bakers a few times and wondered if they would work well. Thanks for the tip. I love Lakeland and there is one close to where my daughter lives.

That well known shop has a branch in my local town. A visit there always takes a lot of restraint!
