Name That Cobbler!

So, what was the mystery dish that graced the top of our Autumn newsletter?

If you guessed it was one of Getty’s incredible creations, you were right. It’s an Apple and Berry Cobbler she posted back in November 2011. Something about a Grey Cup … I think we were all pretty excited about it back then.

Enjoy and be sure to share with us how it came out!

Low in Fat & Calories – Apples are a healthy and sensible snack, that are filling too! Good news is that one apple contains less than 100 calories. Great for the body and the waistline!

Fibre – Apples are a great source of fibre. The peel and pulp of the apple are the main contributors to the fibrous content. One medium sized apple contains over 4 grams of fibre.
