Learning About Apples with Applewood Fresh

Taste testers find Michigan apples to be juicy, crunchy, and full of flavor. That’s thanks to the state’s nutrient-dense soil. Millennia ago, glaciers in the region molded Michigan’s geology and set it up for agricultural success. Today, a climate regulated by the Great Lakes helps the state’s 825 orchards grow incredible apples. Get your mittens on some Applewood Fresh Michigan apples today!

Speaking of baking, here’s a recipe for Nature’s Perfect Snack apples: Apple Pie Bites! Apple pie is one of our favorite desserts, but these bite-size pieces turn it into a tasty snack. We wrapped flakey, fluffy crescent rolls around apples and brown sugar to make these dippable treats. Try them with homemade caramel sauce for a sweet snack that’s sure to satisfy!
