Just why this week in particular is Bramley Apple week I have no idea and no-one seems to be able to tell me, however, they cheer up a dull winters' day, so maybe that's why.
British cooks agree that British Bramley apples are the best cooking apples. But why? It's to do with the balance of sugar and acid found in the Bramley apple. Bramleys contain more acid and less sugar than other apples so they keep their tangy flavor when cooked. The Bramley also has a delicious 'melt-in-the-mouth' texture which again is retained when cooked.
Here's a few, sweet and savoury recipes using Bramley Apples.
