Sweet Crisp Apples & Fall Vegetables!
In the barn this week: As we near the end of the apple crop picking for this season, the barn is filling up with lots of variety choices: This week we’re picking Arkansas Black – With it’s deep red almost black appearance the Arkansas Black is correctly named. This sweet/tart apple is either loved or hated. A great keeper apple, when first picked it is rock hard and not very juicy. But one, two . . . . three months in storage you’ll be amazed at how sweet and mellow this apple becomes in the middle of winter when you long for that fresh flavor of fall! Granny Smith – has crisp mouth-watering tartness. Bright green Granny Smith has a pink blush. Its tartness really comes through when baked and sautéed. Crispin – used to be known as Mutsu, this crispy, sweet apple is known to be very juicy, Gala– a crisp, sweet, juicy apple, Red Delicious – this is what everyone thinks of when they think of an apple!, Golden Delicious– everyone’s favorite sweet yellow apple, Fuji– a firm apple with a unique sweet-tart taste, JonaGold– a cross between a sweet Golden Delicious and a tart Jonathan, this is an excellent apple for pies and baking. Or just eat it! We also have Old Fashioned Winesap–an apple with a spicy old-fashioned flavor that makes it the cider maker’s first choice. Violet red in color, it’s great as a snack and in salads. Winesap is also a great keeper for winter. All are great for eating & cooking!
