The Ms. stews Ballarat apples, or, Rhubarb revisted

See the previous discussion of rhubarb and my English wife: https://www.chowhound.com/post/rhubar...

Well, she was at it again. I got about 10kg of an excellent English cooking apple, Ballarat. Ranks second among the English as a cooker to Bramley's Seedling; Bramleys naturally and quickly turns into the ideal state in English cooked apple, namely, mush. My English wife made stewed apples with some of the Ballarat wanting to please me. She cooked the (cut small) apple pieces a lot and without water. She added brown sugar. She must think that there is something wrong with the taste of apple because she also added a lot of cinnamon. Result: like sweet baby food for children who think that apples are supposed to be medicinal.

She said that she would do something else with what she cooked. Good.

I escaped by telling her that what she made was good, but we had cultural differences.

Dla mnie nie była to zbyt dobra pustynia jabłkowa.
