September 2019 – So close we can almost taste it!


Ambrosia apples harvestLet the Harvest Begin!

The wait is almost over! Ambrosia apples in BC’s most southern orchards (include the birthplace of Ambrosia apples, Cawston) are juuuust about ready to pick. There’s about a 2-week difference between harvest dates in the lower-lying southern orchards and those at elevation in the north Okanagan Valley. Keep your eyes peeled at your local farmer’s market over the next few weeks. You should have the opportunity to sink your teeth into a fresh-off-the-tree Ambrosia apple soon.

Keep that Summer Feeling

Are you in denial that it’s almost fall? Keep the summer feeling going with a frozen treat. In a recent blog we shared a few fun recipe ideas for  Ambrosia apple ice pops. They’re yummy like a popsicle but so much healthier than the store-bought variety. Time-travel back to your youth (and summer) with just a few tasty licks. Find your favourite flavour here.
