Ahhh, the aromas (these are CORTLAND apples, you know) and flavors of an apple orchard!

Watch "Why Can Applesauce Replace Butter? And Oil? And Eggs?" Video.
An excellent all-around tarty (maybe a tad sweeter than its McIntosh parent) apple prized for its mellow texture, "stay-white-longer" flesh, and red-colored applesauce. Plus a great side benefit - Cortland apples may emit an especially pleasant aroma throughout your kitchen area! Cortland originated in New York state as a cross between McIntosh and Ben Davis (a most favored 19th century variety with great "keeping" qualities) well over a century ago so naturally (pun intended!) is a GMO-free variety. The popularity of grown-on-our-own-farm Cortland apples at both our fruit farm market and online continues unabated...and for many good reasons!

A few of those many good reasons will surely include apple pies, this "smashing" Applescotch Crisp dish and a wonderful apple cake recipe! We here are at the apple orchard are suspicious that cooks like you may have found other great usages for this almost antique variety that still shines brightly in the twenty-first century! Care to share? Simply click the Product Reviews tab (above) and go from there!

Before we forget about applesauce though, you'll be happy to have The Pioneer Woman inform you of various creative uses for this wonderful American staple besides the side-dish-for-lunch-or-dinner option, won't you? Opportunities like:
* Make muffins like these. Tremendously good!
* Top cooked pork chops, as
in this recipe. Just sub applesauce for the large apple chunks. Applesauce and pork chops go together.
* Substitute apple sauce for the oil in many baked goods. It’s a healthy choice, baby.
* Spoon warm applesauce over vanilla (or caramel!) ice cream and sprinkle with a little cinnamon. To die for!
* Make regular French Toast and top with a big spoonful of applesauce.

For your info: "The Cortland apple was developed in 1898 by Professor S.A. Beach at Cornell University’s New York State Agricultural Experiment Station. Over the next decade it quickly became one of the more popularly produced apples in New York State and won many awards including the Wilder medal of the American Pomological Society."

We use high-density foam cushioning in our shipping boxes. Each apple occupies its own foam slot for protection, and we carefully pack fruit that is of highest quality. However, we have no control over distance, storage, temperature, or handling during transit, so if the fruit arrives overripe or spoiled, we most likely will not offer a refund, although you're welcome to contact us about it. We offer 2nd Business Day and Next Business Day shipping if you'd like to take an extra step in protecting this favorite fruit through transit. Sorry, Cortland apples are not available for shipping to California, Oregon, and Washington.
