Apple Season in BC

An apple a day keeps the doctor away…or so they say.  Fall is in full swing and that means that apple season and apple picking season is here! Whether you eat apples just as they are or use them to bake a sweet treat, they are a year round staple in most homes. You will love this apple cranberry bake.

Today I am sharing a recipe that my mom has been making for as long as I can remember. This delicious apple cranberry bake is perfect to add to your morning pancakes or oatmeal or even just eating it in a bowl as is! Let’s not forget it is also a tasty topping for ice cream, too. Nothing is better then warm apples with cranberries….such a great flavour combo! I love apple season!

Apple Season in BC

BC Tree Fruit farmers work hard this time of year to bring out the best product for us to use. I am always so happy to source locally grown BC fresh foods and know where my fruit is coming from. 

They grow over 12 varieties of apples….and looking at the list I think there are a few I have never tried yet! They are:

  • Ambrosia
  • Fuji
  • Golden Delicious
  • Granny Smith
  • Honeycrisp
  • McIntosh
  • Nicola
  • Pink Lady
  • Red Delicious
  • Royal Gala
  • Spartan
  • Sunrise
  • Salish

I have loved apples since I was little  and it is one of my favourite snacks with some natural peanut butter. You can never go wrong with having peanut butter and apples.

This time of year I also love going out to pick my own apples. I have always enjoyed making a trip to the orchard and it is so fun to do with a friend or your family. We always went out as a family when I was young. Make sure you take apple picking photos and use these apple picking caption ideas for inspiration.

In my recipe below I used BC Tree Fruit Ambrosia apples. They are known to be sweet and crisp making them perfect for salads, baking and snacking. Fun Fact: Ambrosia apples are slow to brown making them a great choice for all your favourite salad recipes. Next time I have some honeycrisp apples, I want to try these vegan apple fritters.

Since 1936, BC Tree Fruits has been a source for apples, pears, peaches, cherries and a whole host of other fruits grown by over 430 local families in the sunny Okanagan Valley during apple season. In addition, BC Tree Fruits owns and operates BC Tree Fruits Cider Company (which I used in this recipe), Grower’s Supply Company and a fresh produce market in Kelowna.

Apple Fun Fact #73 – Apples are easier to peel when they’re cold (but keep in mind, most of the fruit’s remarkable nutritional value is found in the skin).
