Bramley apple body in public search for recipe to mark Diamond Jubilee

The Bramley Apple Information Service has launched a competition to find a recipe to mark the Queen's Diamond Jubilee next year.

The winning 'Bramley Diamond Dish' will go on sale exclusively in Sainsbury's stores in time for the central weekend of Jubilee festivities in June 2012.

English Apples & Pears chief executive Adrian Barlow said: "The competition celebrates British heritage by combining an historic event with an iconic British product. We will be driving interest in the campaign through a targeted promotional campaign that will increase awareness and sales of Bramley apples throughout the Jubilee period."

Entrants have until midnight on 16 January 2012 to upload their recipes to the Bramley Apple Facebook page (www.facebook.com/bramleyapple). Seven regional recipes will then be selected to go to a public vote.

The official Jubilee Weekend is 2-5 June 2012.
