weekend 9 Oct 14,15
Hi apple fans, we are still big into the cooking apples this weekend. We have the addition of Calville Blanc d Hiver to the the already full pallet of Northern Spy, Melrose and Boskoop.
The Calville is a French heirloom dating back to the 1600s and was always very popular in the kitchens of the best establishments.
Then there is the Dutch apple, Belle de Boskoop. This tart apple has a wonderful complex flavor to it and its dense flesh make it superb for baking.
And again......... there is a zillion of them :)
Hi everyone, weekend 8 Oct 7,8
Are you all in the mood for apple pies, crisps, tarts, cobblars and applesauce? I hope so because this is the weekend for really great cooking apples!
First up is the Northern Spy. This American Heritage apple is a cross of McIntosh but much denser and larger. Considered a first class variety for baking on the east coast.
And the last Asian Pear of the season is up for grabs this weekend, the Olympic.
And saving the very best McIntosh for last, this weekend we have the Winter Mac. A very crisp Mac that keeps well with all the flavor you expect in a Mac.
Im not exagerating when i say there are plenty of these to go around folks. I went out and picked 20 boxes of them and barely made a dent in them.
We also still have lots of the very popular eating apple, Liberty.
This super crunchy mcintosh cross has a great sweet tart flavor that's hard to beat!
As though thats not enough, there are still quite a few Melrose left on the trees from last week. And of course there are still plenty of Jonagolds to go around.
Come on out and get your pie on......
