What a treat we have this week, Alaska Grown apples! They are tasty, but don’t expect the same varieties and flavors you get in the grocery store. Our orchardist, Dan Elliot, grows close to 100 varieties of apples and all have slightly different flavors and textures. We try to choose the best apples for fresh eating (ie that are sweeter and crisper) but some may be more tart than you’re used to. All of his apples are also great for baking or making applesauce. So if you need a little added sweetness to these fall treats, try making an easy pie filling like this recipe that you can keep in the freezer until you need it.
