Why not try?

This dumpling-topped stew is a real crowd-pleaser and so easy to make. Crisp, sweet and tart apples against tangy, creamy Cheddar and soft pork is both comforting and refreshing. This recipe is simple to prepare, but takes a little time to cook, which is no great hardship, as you can get on with putting your feet up while supper gently simmers.

1
Begin by making the stew. Fry the onions, leek, garlic and celery in oil in a cast iron casserole dish or large ovenproof saucepan until soft and slightly golden
2
Throw in the pork and stir to brown. Add the apples and allow to fry for a couple of minutes, before generously seasoning. If you’re using dried sage, add it to the pot now, before pouring over the cider. Leave to simmer for 30 minutes before stirring through the fresh sage, if using
3
To make the dumplings, combine the flour (there’s no need to sift it), suet, salt, pepper and half of the cheese in a mixing bowl. Add enough water to make a dough and roll 8–10 dumplings between your hands. Pop them on top of your pork and apples, put on a lid and leave to simmer for a further 20 minutes
4
Just before serving, scatter over the remaining cheese and pop under a hot grill until the cheese melts and turns slightly golden. Serve with green vegetables
