Sausage rolls

An apple introduced in 1906 by J Cheal, who designed the gardens for William Astor, is being used in a tasty sausage roll on the menu at Hever Castle.

Hever Castle’s Head chef Colin Woolven has been given a batch of ‘Encore’ apples from Anne Boleyn’s Orchard to create the delectable ‘Caramelised Apple Sausage Rolls’.

‘Encore’ is a bright greeny-yellow cooking apple with creamy white flesh, a distinct ribbing and a flattened base. This particular apple variety is known for making a soft baked apple with a rich flavour.

First recorded in 1906 and raised by Charles Ross, Head Gardener at Welford Park in Berkshire, ‘Encore’ was introduced by J Cheal of Crawley, Sussex. The apple received the RHS Award of Merit and 1906 along with the RHS First Class Certificate in 1908.

You will be able to buy the ‘Caramelised Apple Sausage Rolls’ in Hever’s Moat Restaurant from this week and for autumn half term.

The Moat Restaurant is perfect whether you are looking for a quick cup of coffee, afternoon tea, or a meal. It is a great place to eat and drink for all the family.
