Bring Out The Branston

I was very lucky recently, to be sent a package containing Branston pickles.  If you are like me, you  will always have a jar of pickle in your cupboard.

The box contained a lunchbag with ‘Bring Out The Branston’, always very handy for keeping things cool, Branston Original Pickle, new Branson Sweet Chilli Pickle, Branston Caramelised Onion Chutney, new Branston Rich & Smokey BBQ Sauce and Branston Hot Dog Relish.

Original Branston Pickle

I will start with the Branston Original Pickle, this really needs no introduction.  I love boring old cheese and pickle sandwiches, but I also have it with cheese on toast, by spreading onto the toast before adding the cheese.  I also love it with good old Cottage Pie either mixed in to add a different flavour, or just on the side.

Branston Sweet Chilli Pickle

Branston Sweet Chilli Pickle

Branston Sweet Chilli Pickle, I had not tried this before, but we do love sweet chilli sauces, so was very intrigued by this, and have to say we were not disappointed and it gives a new look at sandwiches or as a side.  It is also lovely on a burger.

Branston Caramelised Onion Chutney

Branston Caramelised Onion Chutney

Caramelised Onion Chutney, I always have a jar of this in, we love this with baked Camembert and fresh crusty bread, or with a ploughman’s, or even to liven up a cheese sandwich with its sweetness.

Branston Hot Dog Tomato & Red Pepper Relish

Branston Hot Dog Tomato & Red Pepper Relish

Tomato and Red Pepper Relish, we love relishes and perfect for this time of year with a BBQ.  I did not like this as to tomato in taste, but that is personal to me as I just do not like tomatoes, but everyone else loved this and we had it on our hotdogs at the weekend, and it really made a difference to just boring old mustard or ketchup.

Branston Rich & Smokey BBQ Sauce

Branston Rich & Smokey BBQ Sauce

Branston Rich & Smokey BBQ Sauce, my whole family love BBQ sauce but I do find they vary depending on what brand you buy, but we all loved this and livened up our meals.

Pickle and chutneys, are not just for adding to sandwiches, you really can do so much with them.  In my house I am the one who does the baking or everyday family meals, and just adding some pickle or chutney into a casserole, or pie or anything else you may be cooking, will change the flavour.  You can find a whole range of ideas for recipes here.

What are your favourite pickles or chutneys, and what is your favourite meal to have with them?

      They are the best (in my opinion) and they have a big range of pickles x

    We love Branston and a couple of weeks ago we tried out the caramelised onion chutney – quite delicious.

    I am pickle obsessed at the moment (6 months pregnant) and it always has to be Branston. Perfect on a cheese sandwich.

      My opinion on eating when pregnant is you have to have what you crave as the baby needs it :). I agree always has to be Branstons and nothing nicer in a cheese sandwich x

  6. 02/08/2016 / 5:35 pm

    I didn’t know there were so many variants! I am definitely going to pick some up next time I’m doing my shop!

      It has to be Branstons for me, I did not realise they full extent of their range though x

  10. 02/08/2016 / 7:44 pm

    I am not normally a fan of pickle but I do like the sound of the hot pepper relish which I can imagine will taste nice with Quorn Sausage.

      It does go great with sausages, I only had a tiny taster of this as wasn’t sure as it is tomato and red pepper, and it wasn’t for me but everyone else liked it x

  11. 02/08/2016 / 8:17 pm

    Arghhh you’re going to hate me as I simply cannot stand it! The smell of the pickle makes me heave and the thought of eating it is too much. My husband loves it though – don’t think he realised what a range of products they sell

      This is why I did not like the tomato relish as tomatoes make me feel like that, so I can understand. They do have a huge range though x

  12. 02/08/2016 / 8:17 pm

    I think I’d have to choose original Branston pickle as my favourite. Very retro and I love a cheese and pickle sandwich x

  26. 04/08/2016 / 7:47 am

    I am not a huge pickle fan, but my husband and at least four of the children love it! Its always top of the shopping list when I ask what I need to get them!
    I like the actual sauce part, just not the bits, so I tend to stick the knife in and just spread it on my cheese sandwich.
