Dave’s munching on Lodi or Transparent Apples. We’ll…he’s not munching on them raw*. Lodi or Transparent apples are super tart and are excellent for making applesauce. He says that it is the only apple that both of his grandmothers used for making applesauce. Since they are so tart, you need to add lots of sugar to your sauce. But Lodi and Transparent make a delicious and thick sauce. Dave likes to spread some of Mary Margaret’s home-made applesauce on warm gingerbread. Yumm!
*You are more than welcome to try a Lodi or Transparent apple fresh. But more than likely, you will make a puckered face!
