April 2022 – Spring in the Orchard
Around the World with Ambrosia Apples – China
This month, we travelled to China, and got an idea of how to incorporate Ambrosia apples into a Chinese dessert: Chinese Toffee Apples.
In the Test Kitchen with the Instant Pressure Cooker
Pressure cooking has been around for centuries, but instant pressure cookers have made it easier – and safer – to create slow braised dishes in a fraction of the time. We checked this handy little gadget out this month in the test kitchen and made some delicious Braised Cabbage. CLICK HERE FOR RECIPE
Ramadan this year began on Saturday, April 2 and is over on Monday, May 2. Billions of muslims around the world observe this holy month with fasts and feasts. We dug into the archives about how Ambrosia apples are a fantastic way to break fast during Ramadan. And, again, Ramadan Mubarak (“Blessed Ramadan”) to all our Muslim friends!
