Just don’t burn it: A lesson from Apples

Today I did a bit of baking with the leftover bag of apples we had. For the first time ever I made Apple Oat Loaf, and I also made a reiteration of the apple shortcake squares, which weren’t square because we don’t have a square tin. Still taste great. The apple shortcake squares were also because we had just enough apples left over for it.

It’s interesting to try something new with something you’ve made before, and to also iterate as well. While you try your best at each, you get to experiment to see what works and what doesn’t. What works is delicious, and what doesn’t work teaches you a lesson, but is still delicious (unless you burn it).

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Hi, I’m Tim Bunting AKA the Kiwi Yamabushi, a New Zealander who became a Yamabushi Ascetic in the Dewa Sanzan mountains of north Japan. I’m part of the Yamabushido team, and we host life-altering Yamabushi training on the Dewa Sanzan (website link). People come to us for the ultimate mindfulness experience, to reach the next level, or simply connect with nature and themselves.


I’m on a mission to summit all 100 Famous Mountains of Yamagata Prefecture to spread the splendour of this fabulous location, and in dedication to all those who lost their lives out in nature, including my father.


On my daily blog I post thoughts of a practicing Yamabushi that I hope people can use to better themselves and live as fulfilling a life as possible.
