Crimson Gold–Saucesational Analysis

Crimson Gold is one of our newer apple varieties – in fact, I’m pretty sure this year is the first year we’ve had a decent crop of them at all.  It’s a nice hard, sweet apple with just a hint of tart in it.  It seems that most folks that tried it purchased a bag.  There aren’t anymore this year but it’s definitely a variety to watch out for in the 2017 season.

I did grab a few of the apples so I could analysis how it worked in applesauce for you all.

I used my peeler, corer, slicer to get the apples all ready to go in my mini slow cooker.  I put them IMG_2396

These cooked down into a delicious applesauce.  It was fairly chunky and had a great sweet flavor.  The Crimson Gold are definitely on the top of my applesauce list for great apples!
