Women’s Day

Hi everyone! I’m Irma and I am one of the co-owners and co-developers of the Red Prince apple! There are so many reasons why I love the Red Prince, that is hard to find a place to begin or the right words to explain just exactly how much they mean to me- but let me give it a try! As you have read from one our previous stories, healthy living is super important to our family. People in North America are so busy that we lose track of the most basic things that can really make our day-to-day lives better, like healthy eating. I believe an effort has to be made to switch out unhealthy snacks for alternatives that can help encourage & generate significant health benefits. By growing the Red Prince apple, I feel like we are contributing to a happier and healthier tomorrow. Did you know that red skinned apples are especially high in antioxidants, contain plenty of pectin and loads of fiber, which helps to reduce cholesterol and fight off cancer cells. The Red Prince, with is distinctive ruby-red skin does all of these things while also encouraging healthy heart and memory function! While I am proud that our apple serves as such a healthy and easy option for people and families in North America, I am also incredibly excited about the quality & unique-ness of its taste! I have 4 children of my own, so I know how hard it can be to please everyone when it comes to having the right foods in the house. However, when my kids come home from College and...

With its sweet and tangy finish and its crispy and juicy texture, it lends itself especially well to eating on its own or paired with many different cheeses. Cheese and apples have been paired together for centuries, one of the simplest foods to put together and enjoy. Having some friends together for a get together? A plate of cheese and apples is a simple, yet elegant appetizer to serve, perfect for gathering around and having wonderful conversations. As mentioned above, the sweet and tangy crispness of the Red Prince pairs very well with many different styles of cheese, so you can serve a combination of cheeses to satisfy all of your guest’s preferences. The slight acidity of the Red Prince apple helps cut down the richness in cheeses such as Gorgonzola making a delightful pairing The sweetness and crispness of the Red Prince also works beautifully with the silky smooth texture and earthiness of Camembert or Brie (any creamy cheese works well). Enjoy a blue cheese? The sweetness of the Red Prince pairs beautifully with the sharpness of the cheese Nutty cheeses such Gouda and Gruyere are perfect to pair with the slight tanginess of the Red Prince The stronger the cheese, the better the sweetness of the Red Prince works to mellow the flavour of the cheese for a wonderful combination, perfect with sharp cheddars The tangy, sweet combination of the Red Prince along with its crispness, work wonderfully to enhance the fresh tanginess of goat cheese Add some prosciutto...
