Make my Slow Cooker Ginger Applesauce and you will never buy applesauce again. Sweet @Envy apples paired with Gourmet Garden dried ginger. Simmered to perfection. Great alone or with pork or ham. Bake Slow Cooker Ginger Applesauce into cakes, cookies and pies for a flavor boost. You will have your Valentine begging for more! 😉
What makes Envy™ Apples different from the rest?
Envy™ Apples were born in New Zealand using natural plant-breeding methods by cross-pollinating Braeburn apples with Royal Gala apples. They have since planted trees in Washington state and Chile. Envy™ Apples resist browning longer than their peers. They are providing a prize package for one #FreshTastyValentines winner that will include Envy apples, an apple corer, and more.
I found these apples to be crisp and not too hard. This variety holds up well in applesauce.
