*I was sent apples for this recipe from Freida's Produce; however, all thoughts and opinions are my own. If you are interested in purchasing Frieda's Heirloom Apples, you can visit their website to find a grocery store near you that carries them. If your store does not carry them, you can always request them from your produce manager.*
Happy Fall Y'all!
Whether you pick your own, go to the farmer's market, or shop for the best at your local grocery store, they are everywhere. I love to have them around as snacks, put them in oatmeal, make apple sauce or make a crisp with them.
In general, I stick to the varieties I know, red delicious, jonathan, granny smith and honey crisp. Did you know, though, there are dozens of varieties of apples out there? Many I have never heard of. Frieda's Produce offered to send me some of their organic heirloom apples to try.
I of course accepted, eager to see what I might be missing.
Each of these had a distinct flavor apart from other apples I've tried. It never ceases to amaze me the variety and robustness of fruit, even if they are all just "apples." I wanted to do something fun with these apples and felt they needed something beyond just a crisp or pie. After wracking my brain, I came up with apple chips. I really like throwing them in a salad or just snacking on them. They tend to be expensive and full of sugar though, and homemade is usually better anyways :)
