Whether it’s grabbing an apple to fuel you whilst you’re on-the-go, preparing for the party season, or dishing up some delicious winter warmers, there are endless apple-eating possibilities. With so many delicious British apple varieties to choose from there’s a British apple for every occasion; from crunching a Gala on the go, to preparing party food with Cox and baking with Bramleys, we’ve got your festive foodie needs covered.
Snack as you stroll
When life really is a walk in the park, it’s best accompanied by a British apple. So, as you get set for a winter stroll, or tackle the daily dog walks, don’t forget to grab a Great British apple-to-go. Perhaps go for a Gala, with its stripy red skin, crisp bite and wonderfully sweet flavour, it’s the perfect portable snack for a healthy energy boost.
Get the party started
A variety of cheeses, chutney, biscuits, and of course… British apples; these are the essentials for a showstopping cheeseboard. With just the right balance of sugars and bite, as well as a honeyed aroma, especially great with blue cheese, Cox apples complement an array of hard, soft, strong and mild cheeses. Serve with homemade apple chutney and you’ve got a real crowd-pleaser.
As the evenings get colder, our British Bramleys can be used to make all your comfort-food dreams come true. Although pies and crumbles are traditional family favourites, there are so many new, innovative ways you can get cooking with Bramleys. From quick, Microwave Bramley Apple Sauce, to festive Baked Bramleys, both sweet and savoury.
