I just love the autumn months, when you can smell apples in the air, like the Ontario Cortland Apples at Harvest Barn Country Markets.
That’s apple farming country! Have you ever seen apples like these?
These Cortland apples are unblemished, enormous, with a rosy red, crimson skin, marked with pale yellow, and dark red striations, green specks, and very shiny – all signs that they are super-fresh. The whole bag is full of apples this size or bigger.
I have used some of my Cortland apples for various apple pies, and I am very impressed at how juicy and sweet they are. Also, a bushel of Cortland apples will store well in a fruit cellar or other cold area, so you can enjoy them for up to two months or more.
Find out about this product on this webisode of What I Say About Food:
Cortlands are a cross between a McIntosh and Ben Davis apple, and as a result of experimentation in Cortland County, in New York State, we have been given these scrumptious, very firm, delectable apples.
Since they are so firm, they hold up well for pies, which bake for almost an hour. I have been very pleased with the pie results using Cortland apples, and have had no end of compliments when I serve them to my friends or family.

These Cortland apples are from my local Harvest Barn Country Market in Niagara-on-the-Lake. They have another market in St. Catharines, in southern Ontario, and you can find them online:
Do look them up and you will be amazed at the extensive variety of apples and other fresh produce that they carry. In addition, they offer many other food products to their customers.
Bring home a bag or bushel of these beautiful apples, and make some wonderful desserts for your loved ones.
Make a point of stopping in and picking up some Ontario Cortland apples at Harvest Barn Country Markets to enjoy.
