July 2021 – Summertime in the Orchard
Restrictions are lifting, and life is slowly getting back to normal. Our Ambrosia orchardists are busy getting ready for Fall, when we’ll harvest our apples. To find out what they’re up to, CLICK HERE. Don’t worry though, there’s no need to go without these tasty treats: our growing partners in the southern hemisphere are shipping apples to tide us over.
Ambrosia Apple A Day Update
Patricia continues to eat her Ambrosia apple a day. “It’s definitely a habit now,” she says. “I don’t even think about it, I just automatically cut one up to take to work, and I eat it fresh and crispy as a mid-morning snack.” She does admit to being a little more ‘adventurous’ on the weekends, when she’ll enjoy an Ambrosia apple recipe from our website, or create her own. A rousing game of crib with an Ambrosia apple with cheddar cheese and Leslie Stowe’s cranberry and hazelnut crisps (shown) was the perfect way to spend a hot hot day last month. Let us know your favourite way to enjoy your Ambrosia apples every day. #Ambrosiaappleaday.
