We all know the only reason adults buy bags of apples is because a) a pretty fruit bowl is cheaper than flowers and b) there’s a chance you’ll eat more than one. Let’s just own our flaws and admit we ain’t ever gettin through kilos of apples before the fruit flies swarm and the gloss fades. Until today. Today we make muffins. Or as I like to call my vaccination against hangry.
