The Idared variety, Wikipedia would have us know, "... is very well suited for making apple sauces, pies, and cakes."

Watch "Five Delicious Apple Hacks" Video.
Not as well known, perhaps, but GMO-free Idared apples, grown right here on our farm in Lancaster County, of course, will surely be well regarded after you try them! This offspring of Jonathan and Wagener was developed in Idaho and (we at Kauffman's agree with Wikipedia, above) is especially well suited for applesauce (just ask Jeanne Dickel, below!), baking (it holds its shape very well), cooking (don't miss trying this dish), and drying uses (there's a good chance that those Tart Schnitz you buy at Kauffman's are dried Idared apples!)

Extra, EXTRA: Jeanne Dickel, then a cashier in our market, entered a Kauffman's Fruit Farm grown Idared and Rome Beauty blend into the applesauce competion at the local West Lampeter Community Fair a few years ago. The result: Jeanne brought a second place ribbon home with her!

Speaking of applesauce, are you aware that this vintage American staple can be used in more ways than merely as a tasty side dish at lunch or dinnertime? Here are a few creative ideas to get the cooks at your house started! Then there is the Allrecipe website which chimes in with this timely tidbit, "Ida Reds have a tangy flavor and a flesh that is sometimes tinted a rosy pink. It makes beautiful applesauce: cook the apples with the skins on and strain the sauce to get the best pink color."

In case you're wondering: Yes, Idared can be eaten fresh with good effect! Just ask Adam of the Adam's Apples blog: "Her creamy-white flesh is on the fine side of coarse-grained, crisp though a little tender, and juicy. The balance is pleasantly tart, with sugar lurking underneath. Vinous and spicy flavors, and an astringent finish, combine to make Ida Red bracing and refreshing. There is also a hint of melon." (Emphasis his)

This Just In! Idared is one of the most healthful varieties of that wonderfully wholesome fruit of which one "a day keeps the doctor away!"

More great varieties grown in our orchards which may be similar to Idared include Stayman and Pink Lady.

Isn't it great? One doesn't even have to drive to an orchard or roadside stand to buy premium fresh fruit anymore! You can easily order right here and have Kauffman's Fruit Farm grown-in-Bird-in-Hand Idared apples shipped to your front door, pronto!

We utilize high-density foam cushioning in our shipping boxes. Each Idared apple occupies its own foam slot for protection, and we pack the box with 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 for those customers who'd like to take an extra step to protect the fruit during shipping. This item is not available for sale in or to California, Oregon, and Washington.
