a match made in apple heaven
Ah, the humble Golden Delicious, that girl next door, mild-mannered and sweet. She’s never turned heads like that pretty Pink Lady, never sassed up a crowd like that tart Granny Smith. A little bit plump, with a blush on her cheeks, she was content enough to spend her days lounging about unnoticed.
That fellow Winesap, more than 70 years her senior, took one look at that blushing maiden in her soft yellow gown and declared her his own. He’s rough around the edges and scarred with age, a hard man really. She softens his edges though, she sweetens his tartness. And he, well, he helps that girl to stand up tall.
Here at Frog Creek, the apple pies are not too tart, not too sweet, and they come out of the oven just as tall as they were when they went in. The applesauce is perfectly sweetened by nature’s goodness: 50 percent Winesap, 50 percent Golden Delicious and not one pinch of refined sugar. Thank heaven for this perfect match.
