This week I’ve decided to continue highlighting my love of vintage cooking. Last week, I highlighted 18th century cooking. This week, I’m widening the scope, and focusing on the 19th and 20th century. Since it’s apple season, I’m going to focus on apple recipes.


Audley End House and Gardens, Walden, Essex UK

Today’s recipe is from English Heritage. You can find their youtube channel HERE.  English Heritage is a historical society in England that cares for over 400 historic buildings, monuments and sites.

The recipe is called an APPLE HEDGEHOG, prepared by the Victorian cook at the Audley End House, for the Lord and Lady and guests. This is a delicious and unique end to a wonderful meal.


Until next time… Namaste my friends







About Tamara Hoerner (1349 Articles)
Welcome to The Purple Almond! My name is Tamara Hoerner. I am a student at Hawthorn University working toward a Master of Science in Health and Nutrition Education. For me, the name Purple Almond symbolizes “Good, nutritious, whole food bringing light and life to the body, awakening the inherent healing mechanisms within.” I'm all about getting back to the basics, good old fashioned traditional organic, whole food, the kind your great-grandmother used to eat. You'll find no processed foods here. Just good food to heal your whole body. I also believe a healthy body isn't just about food. Stress plays a large part in the physical health of our body. I, therefore, believe in using anything that relieves stress and heals the body, including: mediation, yoga, music, laughter, inspiration and helping others. You'll find all these included in my blog as well.

    If you were wondering about apples dipped in honey on Rosh Hashana, Beautiful People, I am here with an answer: honey for a sweet year, and applle – well, it’s sweet, so we sort of double the sweetness. But then, why not use peaches, or, say, mangoes? That’s because apples remind us of Garden of Eden, otherwise called “the holy apple orchard,” fragrant with the scent of apples ( This is the cutest apple recipe, shared by dear Tamara of The Purple Almond. Enjoy!
