Harvested in March, Golden Delicious are at their peak March to May, although we may still have some in June and July.
An all-purpose variety, Golden Delicious apples are pale green to golden-yellow in colour. The flavours of these firm crisp white-fleshed apples vary: grown in a cool climate, the amount of acid in this apple increases, creating a sweeter flavour.
The Golden Delicious apple has a sweet-tart flavor can be enjoy fresh, but the necessary acid content and stability to be a cooking apple. Fresh, raw apple may be added to green salads, fruit salads or grain salads. Sweeten and spice apple slices, then bake into crisps, crumbles, tarts, cakes, breads and bread puddings. Apple slices may also be cooked down into preserves and butters, or pureed into sauces. Pairs well with savory items as well, such as onions, cabbages, cheeses and strong herbs. Add slices to panini
or cold sandwiches. Keep dry and refrigerate until ready to
eat or use.
