Cinnamon Honeycrisp Apple Fruit Leather ~ Gourmet Edition ~

FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites

Honeycrisp apples are characterized by an exceptionally crisp and juicy texture.  Its flesh is cream-colored and course.  The flavor is sub-acid and ranges from mild and well-balanced to strongly aromatic, depending on the degree of maturity.  It has consistently ranked as one of the highest quality apples in the University of Minnesota sensory evaluations.

How to Select:  Look for a large, 3- to 5-inch round fruit with a deep stem crevice.  The skin should be taut, medium thick, with bright red splotches over a yellow field.   Expect the surface to feel a bit waxy and slightly uneven. If, however, the skin is wrinkly or wizened at the stem end, select a different piece of fruit or ask for a discount and take then home for fruit leather recipes!  The knock test works best to distinguish between solid and mushy: Snap a fingernail against the apple’s side and expect a crack in reply. If you hear a thud, the flesh will be less crisp than the ideal fruit.

When and where:
 Late September through October with fruit from cold storage available into December unless the crop sells out.  Most stores will carry the Honey Crisp, but some avoid them because their price continues to be dear.  Expect to pay from $2.49 for conventional fruit up to $4 per pound for certified organic.
