I have never been much of an apple fan, but my family on the other hand, loves them. we recently had the opportunity to try out Envy Apples and we were all super excited for the chance because as soon as we opened the box all you could smell was sweet apples.
Envy Apples originate from New Zealand but have since been planted in Washington state and Chile. They are a cross-pollination of Braeburn apples with Royal Gala apples. Not only are they a beautiful color of red they are the sweetest apples I have ever eaten. I never thought I would love an apple but Envy Apples are game changers.
I decided instead of just picking at the apples we would do something delicious with them. My family and I are trying to reduce our sugar and carb intake so I thought I would make an unwrapped apple pie so to speak. Basically, it’s a baked cinnamon apples.
Instead of sugar I used Stevia so the calories are low but the flavor is off the charts. Using Envy Apples I didn’t have to use much Stevia because the apples are sweet enough but if you use some other apple you may find yourself needing more Stevia.
