Apple Store & Black Butter

The Apple Store

A mobile store displaying 60+ heritage apples from Worces tershire orchards & a selection likely to have grown on the Highbury estate Birmingham. Apple tastings? All apple-icants will be considered.

Birmingham Black Butter

‘Black butter’ is a traditional Jersey preserve, made in huge quantities, usually during the month of November. Local women used to get together to peel hundreds of pounds of apples whilst the men and children would gather enough wood to keep the fire going for almost two days. For The Pomology Project, a new Birmingham black butter recipe and cooking method has been created by artist Jo Capper working with the Ashiana Community Centre.
