Having just one specimen makes scientific photography a little more difficult. I tried to capture it from all necessary angles and in all it's grandeur before the processing began. I was relieved to find no evidence of watercore or a coddling moth tunnel when I sectioned it.
While I was dicing away at this moster I took the opportunity to judge the Bramley as an eating apple. It was a truly exceptional apple to eat raw. The flavour is difficult to describe, the sensation is acid to begin with but there is an underlying sweetness. The texture was crisp with a high water content. This apple makes the Granny Smith taste like a fake plastic apple! The stewing process was a bit of guess work. I had about 200g of fruit to which I added 2 teaspoons of caster sugar and 6 teaspoons of water.
