It seems that the Danes are returning to tasty varieties of apples instead of just those shiny and huge ones that last forever. Until recently Granny Smith seemed to be the only apple around but now you can get Discovery, Ingrid Marie, Gråsten (Gravenstein), Cox Orange, Filippa and others. I think it’s wonderful to find these apples in the shops but also along the roads of the Southern part of Sweden where my family has a house. That part of Sweden is famous for its apples and I drink a glass of apple juice from there every morning.
My uncle has a place in the Eastern part of Jutland where they have a nice orchard that gives masses of apples. This picture was taken there:
This windfall fruit is used for juice, unfiltered and wonderful – and they get to celebrate one year of posting a weekly photo on this blog. That is some merit I guess…
