Fresh, cool breezes swirl around you. Fallen leaves crunch under your feet. Scents of warm cinnamon tickle your nose. Autumn seems to be made for apples. And one of my favorites is honeycrisp apples.
Honeycrisp is a cultivated variety developed at the University of Minnesota in the 1960s and released to the public in 1991. Honeycrisp is the most buzz-worthy apple of all time. The honeycrisp apple was created to grow well in cooler northern climates, so it is an ideal food for these chilly fall months.
Because this apple is both sweet and crispy, the name honeycrisp is ideal. Its sweetness and tartness make it a great raw snack. But it also is great for baking and cooking.
