It’s only mid-September but I’ve been enjoying apples for months –thanks to these early varieties.

  • Delightfully crisp Gala are super crunchy and sweet with rosy skin. They’re good for applesauce or snacking.
  • Streaked pale green and red Honeycrisp are slightly tart and fabulous for baking or applesauce.
  • Red and shiny with a touch of green, MacCoun have the best of everything – sweet, tart, crunch. Fabulous for vegetable, chicken or tuna salads
  • Petite, Early McIntosh have the aroma of an orchard and are perfect for little hands (my kids gobble them up). They make a sweet and delicious pie, too.

Top 5 Things to Do with Early Apples

1.) Make Waldorf Salad.

2.) Add fresh strawberries to homemade applesauce.

3.) Slice and drizzle with local honey and granola.

4.) Make figure-friendly apple desserts.

5.) Dice apples over oatmeal and mix in some cinnamon and walnuts on a chilly September morning.
