Apple of the Week: Cortland

Lapacek’s Orchard has been teaming up with a local CSABurr Oak Gardens to provide an ‘apple share’ to their clientele.  The share owners decided if they wanted to opt in for either a 1/4 peck share or a 1/2 peck share.  This means that each week they either got a 1/2 peck of apples or a 1/4 peck of apples.  I’ve personally LOVED this new partnership.  It’s been fun deciding which apple would be ‘best’ for that particular week.  I’ve been trying to include a little information to go along with each bag about the apple and here’s what was included for this week:

Apple of the Week: Cortland

Big with dark stripes, perfumed, slightly acid, very good flavor. Keeps shape in cooking. Pure white flesh stays white after cutting. Stores well when refrigerated.

McIntosh x Ben Davis

Check out my blog to see the fun ‘Apple Cider Apple Cups’ I made out of Cortland’s: http://lapaceksorchard.blogspot.com/2011/09/apple-cider-in-apple-cup-of-course.html

Hopefully the share owners have enjoyed this as well and it works out again for next season.

Tune in to see what next week’s ‘Apple of the Week’ will be!
