This week, our Lufa Farms order included organic Cortland apples from Verger Maia, organic Spartan apples from Verger Biologique Maniadakis, organic Honeycrisp apples from Pomibec, organic cranberries from Atoka and unsweetened apple sauce made with Jersey Mac apples by Catherine Cafiti. We already made a Sunday dinner out of the loot, with roasted salmon in spiced apple sauce on a bed of potatoes and apples and a fennel, apple and pear salad on the side.
Now, it’s time for brunch.
There is always room for dessert. These light and airy cranberry apple streusel muffins are tangy and zesty, redolent with bright lemon flavour and bursts of sweet-and-sour cranberries. Honeycrisp apples provide the sweetness, along with all-natural maple syrup or honey and an oat-and-brown-sugar topping. They are low in fat and processed sugar, and can feel downright virtuous for a dessert – or just right for breakfast.
