I really wish I could remember what variety of apples we planted, way back when....
At the time, I was a sleep deprived, busy Mom with two little ones in diapers....Remembering the apple names were the least of my worries at the time..
It sure would be nice to know them now!
The red variety, is a dense apple with a tart flavor and a blushing pink flesh.
This apple is one of my favorites to add to a simple dinner salad. Just cut, toss in lemon juice to retain color and keep apples from turning brown. Then sprinkle them on your salad and pair it with your favorite dressing.
We really like the tart apples paired with locally made Bleu Cheese Dressing from Lighthouse!
