last night tesco was selling bramley apples cheap. 38p for 4apples. and shortcrust pastry 500mg for 28p. so i decided to make apple pie. interestingly i forgot to add suger to the apples, and have to sprinkle it on the pie top instead. but it still tasted lovely. i forgot to sprinkle cinnamon powder in the apples too, but it dont seem to affect the pleasure of eating it.  usually bramley apples are very tart, but after roasting they sweeten. i have noticed this of other vegetables too, roast carrots, parsnips, onions, all seem to taste very sweet after roasting. this time, my apple pie did not collapse into itself as the apples inside it cooked and shrink. i wonder why this one did not do so.

 added 18.1.16 i realise why it does not collapse. it is because there were quite a lot of extra pastry left over and instead of throwing them away i just put them on the lid, that strengthens it, i think which is why the lid did not collapse when the apples inside shrunk. 

added. 5.06pm 3C. rain. quite heavy rain and the temperature has suddenly taken a dip just now, it was about 6C a short time ago. cant say we notice the cold inside the flat. it feels very mild. there is no snow in london, as it is too warm for it. i think this rain will keep people in their houses. somehow when it rains like this, i dont feel like going out, and i daresay a lot of people will feel the same as me. it would be nice if we did have snow. maybe in the early morning tomorrow, we might wake up to a white scene outside the window. hope so. 

added. 7.04pm, it has dipped to 1.6C but is now back up to 2C. i wonder if this is the lowest it will get to, if so, than my hopes for a white snow scene tomorrow will be dashed.

      i too dont like suger, but in all the apple pie recipes, u always find them saying u must put in suger and lots of it. well from my own personal experience, i can say they are all wrong. granny smith apples can be used too, and maybe they are only available in singapore, but i think bramley apples are the best for apple pie. but i can bet, they are not available in singapore. they can only be used in cooking, so not much demand worldwide for them, i should think.
