Expert Tips
• Do ensure the bread is very fresh
• Select the cheese according to your own preferences. Mild or mature versions both work well.
• Alternatively, opt for a classic English blue cheese such as Stilton
• Don’t cut the apple until it’s time to serve as the flesh will brown quickly once exposed to the air.
• Try out this delicious open sandwich with our Rapture Red Onion Chutney or our Sunburst Old-Fashioned Tomato Chutney to ring the changes.
