July 2022 – SUMMER In The ORCHARD

Summer is a time when most of us relax, but the old saying rings true: A farmer’s work is never done! Our Ambrosia apple farmers are very busy getting their orchards ready for Fall harvest.

Difficult decisions are being made: on average, two to six such fruits per cluster are thinned down to one large and healthy Ambrosia apple. Read all about it CLICK HERE.

Recipe: Braised Red Cabbage with Ambrosia Apples

The secret is in the butter, and of course, the Ambrosia Apples. Peeled or unpeeled, it’s up to you. In the summer heat, we recommend using the instant pressure cooker. Enjoy this comforting favourite with any pork dish – maybe some barbecued pork tenderloin? CLICK HERE

Ambrosia Apple a Day

We had a chance to check in with Patricia and asked her if she is still eating her Ambrosia Apple a Day. “Absolutely!” she enthused, although she did admit that it may not be every single day. “I do take one in my lunch every weekday, and on the weekends I try some of the recipes featured on the blogs, so close!”
