Apple Mash

This was one of the accompaniments to Barney Desmazery’s Crisp Cider Braised Pork Belly that I cooked for Sunday lunch. It’s really tasty and a bit decadent so I hope you enjoy it, especially as it’s so easy to make.


  • 2 large baking potatoes, peeled and chopped
  • 1 large Bramley apple, cored, peeled and chopped
  • 100ml double cream
  • Knob of butter

Method of Preparation:

  1. Bring 2 large, peeled and chopped baking potatoes to the boil and simmer for 10 mins.
  2. Add 1 large peeled, cored and chopped Bramley apple and simmer for 5 mins.
  3. Drain and return to the pan through a potato ricer, or mash.
  4. Over a low heat, beat in 100ml double cream and a knob of butter.
  5. Season and serve.

There you go, tasty apple mash served up in about 25 minutes. I recently got a potato ricer (£8 from Asda) and it’s a dream. I’ve always struggled with the odd lump in my mash but these things but an end to that straight away. The result was a smooth mash with a hint of apple that was a great accompaniment to this dish and I imagine would be just as good with any pork recipe you want to try.

  1. This looks fantastic, what a great idea. Apple and pork are always a good duo, I was wondering if you’d like to enter this recipe into our Gourmandize Giveaway recipe competition. This month the theme is apples so it would be perfect, and there are nice prizes to win – let me know what you think:
