It’s winter but that doesn’t mean our moods have to be down. This weekend we brightened up our weekend with a celebration! As a family who cares a lot about good food and having fun we wanted to celebrate everything apples with Opal Apples.
The Opal® apple variety has been praised for its bright yellow color accented with natural russeting at the stem, but is recognized above all for offering a distinctively crunchy texture and sweet and tangy flavor. In addition to its great taste, Opal® resists oxidation so it’s less likely to brown after slicing and is perfect for snacking and lunches. That also means they’re perfect for entertaining!
To celearte Opal Apples we had a fun party with plenty of apple treats to munch on. I started first by making apple tartlets. Sliced apples, a little sugar and cinnamon makes the perfect pie filling. I used premade pie dough for easy prep work and a mini muffin pan for creating the tarts.
Baked at 350 degrees for 20 minutes and you have the perfect little mini apple pies.
At any party the drinks are a must and we created a fun apple strawberry lemonade. Blend apples and strawberries with a little sugar and add to lemonade. Super simple and so fresh and fun for parties!
We also had other fun food like fried wantons, grilled apples and cheese sandwiches and apple snack bites. Simple and fun and everyone really enjoyed it!
So brighten up your day with a delicious apple this season! You can find Opal® apples at your local grocer.
