Sauce-Sational: An Experiment in Applesauce – Golden Delicious

321 My favorite thing I ever read on how to describe the Golden Delicious was, “NOT a Red Delicious.”  I think a lot of people tend to group Golden Delicious with the Red and don’t give them the chance they deserve.  Golden Delicious are sweet, juicy and crisp.  They are great for fresh eating and for pies.  They tend to hold their shape when cooked. 
These are a really good apple and we still have plenty.  Either stop in on Saturday’s from 9 until Noon or give us a call to schedule a pick up time.323
I was not disappointed with my Golden Delicious Sauce.  It had a great sweet flavor with just a touch of tart.  They held their shape pretty well – they look pretty mushed down but I cooked them for a good 4 hours in my crock pot so they should be!  Definitely a decent apple for sauce.
