What's it like?

Explosively crisp and rapidly becoming the most popular among apple connoisseurs, 'HoneyCrisp' is truly an apple for everyone who loves apples.

The fruit has an exceptionally crisp, sweet and juicy texture with a complex sweet-tart flavor. It is excellent for fresh eating, and salads, and is good for sauce, baking, and pies. This is without a doubt our favorite apple.

Background

The 'HoneyCrisp' apple was produced from a 1960 cross between 'Macoun' and 'Honeygold', as part of the University of Minnesota apple breeding program. With strict requirements about where and how it can be grown, 'HoneyCrisp' is not for every grower. For those with the location and those who are willing to give this apple the added attention it needs, a true treat awaits their customers.

EASY APPLE SAUCE

Wash and dry 4 HoneyCrisp apples;  cut apples into quarters;  add apples to a 3 or 4 quart size saucepan with a 1/4 cup water.  Cover pan and cook over low-medium heat for 15 - 20 minutes or until apples are completely softened.

Remove pan from heat and leave uncovered until apples cool slightly.  Process cooked apples through a food mill into a serving or mixing bowl to remove skins and seeds

Yield:  2 + cups (depends on size of apples)
