Uses For Our Apples

Many of our customers ask us what our apples are best used for.  Our response is that our apples are all-purpose apples.  Yes, Red Delicious apples are traditionally fresh eating apples...however our cousin swears by Red Delicious for making apple butter.  You can make a straight sauce out of any variety.  Frequently we combine different varieties in sauce or in recipies to combine the unique, delicious flavors of our various varieties into every bite!  It is difficult to characterize the flavor of an apple, and if you search the internet you will find various descriptions.  We suggest that you try every variety we have so you know what you like based upon your first-hand taste testing!
