    You can't make jelly with kiwifruit, it has the same funny enzymes as pineapple, so it won't set.

    I've a bowlful of oranges, apples, pears and kiwi fruit that's looking a bit, err, ripe :rolleyes: and apart from throwing it at SWMNBM :D , I've no idea what to do with it. I've had a trawl of Rosieben's fruit section of the mega-index (Ihave, honest!) but haven't seen anything in there. No doubt there is but being from the Land of the Terminally Dim, I missed it :o

    Can't do smoothies or anything like that 'coz all the kitchen gadgets have strangely disappeared :rolleyes: , the freezer is full of meat and similar stuff as I'm denying myself treats as of 3 weeks ago (sad but true, paying off debts comes first ). I really hate throwing anything vaguely edible in the bin so if anyone has any suggestions, I await.

    Thanks all.

    Hi Martyn

    Could you make an apple or pear crumble ?

    Having found the recipe, I'm quite tempted to have a go.

    Is it okay to use all the fruits and do they need the "bad" bits cutting off first?

    Apples - apple sauce ( beautiful with roast chicken or turkey, try it)
    Pears & kiwi, mash together to make a coli
    Oranges - fresh orange juice
