I’ve had a love affair with this early fruit bearing Apple tree for years, but it wasn’t until I posted a picture of it to facebook that I learned its identity: a yellow transparent apple! It’s an early season apple, and because it is such a perfect yellow it complements the yellows of August–like a fairytale. A practical fairytale, because they provide me with apple sauce all year long.
The apples are great for eating and making apple sauce and cider but not for baking pies. I core the apples, slice them with their skin, and cook them at a low heat for a long while with a bit of water. I freeze the apple sauce to bake with all year long. This isn’t a recipe, but a photo essay. Hope you enjoy!
