October 2018 – Making the most of Ambrosia season with double the recipes!
Nutty Ambrosia Apple Rocket Salad
This salad is the perfect marriage of summer freshness and autumn comfort. The peppery arugula along with the crispy Ambrosia apples are summer in a bowl. Meanwhile, the creamy, hemp heart dressing and toasted nuts are hearty enough for a fall meal.

Have You Met an Ambrosia Apple Farmer Lately?
When World Cuisine’s Collide
Ambrosia apples are distinctly Canadian but what would happen if you applied a distinctly Swedish cooking style? You’d get a crust-less apple pie inspired by the chefs at the famous Hasselbacken Restaurant. And the ice cream on top? We borrowed that from another culture. The international result is one delectable dessert. Grab the recipe here.
You Said It!
Now that the fruits of our harvest are in store, social media is abuzz with Ambrosia apple love. Here are a few tweets we intercepted recently.
