Produce Possibilities this week is all about fruit! Apples, pears, and figs are featured in our recipes, with a delicious accent splash of flavor from Meyer lemons.
The apples in the Apple-Pear Salsa recipe are local and may come from one of three orchards we purchase from. The first, which we have had our longest relationship with, is Cedar Hills. They are located in Hutchinson and provide our HoneyCrisp and Haralson apples. The next is Whitewater Valley Orchard. They are located near St. Charles and they provide many different varieties throughout the season including; Regent, Fortune, Freedom, Northern Lights, Red Baron, Enterprise, McIntosh, and Sweet Sixteen. Applewood Orchard, located in Lakeville is our newest supplier for Zestar, Cortland and Sweet Sixteen apple varieties.
The rest of the fruit in our recipes may not be local, but definitely a part of the fall flavor. Figs are available for such a short time, and you don’t want to miss these exciting fruits! Pears are now in full swing for the season and are at their peak in quality as well. Meyer lemons have just shown up and are the heralds of the upcoming citrus season. Explore these and many more exciting combos with Produce Possibilities!
