A Special Winter Apple

baked-apple-chips

It only makes sense that apple recipes abound in South Georgian Bay, given we’re on the famed Apple Trail.  But this one uses a special winter apple, the Red Prince, unique to this area and available only from January onward each year.

Although Red Prince apples they are tasty when harvested, something magical happens when they are cellared after a fall harvest like fine wine until the New Year comes.  While they sleep, their flavour and texture are enhanced as the natural sugars and acids mature. Even with limited availability, over 100,000 cartons will make the trek from Thornbury to retailers all over North America this winter season.

Go here for the recipe for Apple Chips.
