Bramley Apples - The Cook's Choice

Each month, the Bramley Campaign is highlighting different ways to use this versatile ingredient and for November the focus is on Bramley paired with pork.

Bramley has been partnered with pork for centuries – the tangy taste of Bramley offsets the rich meaty flavour of the pork which makes them the ideal pairing. Roast pork and apple sauce has long been one of the most celebrated combinations, but there is so much more you can do with these ingredients. Why not try a taste of the Caribbean with fiery pork and Bramley apple Jamaican spiced patties, or create a speedy rösti for lunch by adding ham to grated potato and Bramley.

The secret to the unrivalled excellence of the Bramley apple lies in its wonderful tart flavour, which is retained all through cooking, together with its light and moist texture. Unlike dessert apples, or ‘eating apples’, the Bramley maintains it’s strong, tangy taste when cooked, which is why chefs and home-cooks alike agree they far superior for use in recipes.

The Bramley Campaign wants people to share their love for Bramley on social media using the #LoveBramley. It could be sharing a classic recipes a top cooking tip or even a photo of your Bramley lunch, dinner or dessert.

Make sure you share your photos and recipes with us on Facebook, Pinterest and Instagram using the hashtag #LoveBramley.
