Firm, shiny and crisp, British apples are at their best this time of year. The apple season lasts for many months and kicks off in August with the ripening of the Bramley apple. Available in a range of sizes and colours, such as mustard yellows, pale greens and deep reds, the most popular kinds are Gala, Braeburn, Scrumptious, Cox, Bramley and Evelina. Juicy and sweet, they’re best enjoyed on their own as an afternoon snack or in salads, smoothies, tarts and pies.
