Mikuni Wild Harvest - Mountain Rose Apples Apple lovers, here’s one you might not have seen—a blushing beauty named Mountain Rose that is rosy throughout its core. This extremely rare heirloom-variety apple is only harvested once annually in Oregon’s Hood River Valley. Mountain Rose is an excellent eating apple, with the sweetness of strawberries or lemonade, and a fantastic crunch. It also looks and tastes gorgeous in a pie.
There's nothing quite like the smell of apples and cinnamon coming out of your oven and a beautiful fall evening. This cinnamon scented apple crisp is a perfect fall dessert, when apples are at their peak. Serve it warm topped with a scoop of low fat vanilla ice cream or frozen yogurt and enjoy. I like to use Empire, Gala, or Braeburn apples when baking.
