Cooking with Apples Over Christmas

There are a few ways to use apples over the Christmas period that we all know about. Whether that’s making a delicious mulled apple cider drink or adding slices of apples to the Christmas cheeseboard, we all have our favourite Christmas apple recipes that we turn to at this time of year.

But because Pink Lady® Apples are so versatile, there’s plenty of different ways you can incorporate them into your Christmas feasts. Here’s just a few of our favourite ways to use Pink Lady® Apples on Christmas day and right through the holiday season.

Christmas Side Dishes with Apples

You may think that apples don’t really make sense with a traditional Christmas dinner, but if you’re cooking pork or ham, an apple sauce will always work. Equally you can try some of these side dish recipes we’ve picked out for you.

Celeriac & Truffle Mash with Pink Lady® Apples

We know how it goes in most households. You try to make everyone happy and end up making three different types of potatoes because nobody can agree on which one’s best. Well this is when you need to turn your mash into a moreish side dish that everyone will be going back to for a second helping.

Apple Mince Pies

You can put your tree up, decorate your house and go Christmas shopping, but it’s not really Christmas until the mince pies come out, is it? By adding Pink Lady® apples into the mix you can give your mince pies an extra bite of sweetness that everyone will enjoy.

Christmas Cheeseboard with Apples

Once you’ve helped yourself to a second portion of Christmas dinner, enjoyed a hearty bowl of Christmas pudding or a couple of mince pies, you’ll be slowly easing your way into a food coma. But then someone will bring out the cheeseboard. And there’s always room for a chunk or two of good quality cheese.

And what better way to cut through the buttery tartness of a mature cheddar or a lip smacking creamy blue cheese than with a sweet slice of a Pink Lady® apple? For some inspiration, you could try this cheddar, walnut and honey combination with Pink Lady® apples.
