Make quick apple tarts by cutting circles of purchased puff pastry using a saucer as a guide. Toss thinly sliced apple with lemon juice and arrange on pastry, leaving a small border around the edge. Dot with butter, sprinkle with sugar and bake in a hot oven until golden. Serve with a dollop of natural yoghurt.
Toss sliced apples with a squeeze of lemon juice and add sliced celery. Stir in mayonnaise (thinned with a little hot water if necessary) and top with toasted walnuts and sliced avocado. Serve with barbecued lamb and mint sausages.
Cook sliced apples and chopped rhubarb in a heavy-based saucepan with a splash of water. Add sugar and finely grated lime rind and cook until apples are tender, stirring often. Cool and serve with muesli.
