Michigan Apple Committee, 18th Americas Food & Bev. Show
Miami Beach, Fla.—Michigan Apple Committee was at the 18th America’s Food and Beverage Show. They represent 850 family apple farms. Many of the farms are owned and run by forth and fifth generation farmers according to the committee members.
I asked what the difference between Michigan and Washington apples was. And the answer I got was, “taste.”
“Climate coupled with soil and abundance of water is the reason for the difference in taste,” said to Cam Harrington, Account Manager of Michigan Apples.
According to Harrington, in eight out of ten blind taste tests, Michigan apples will walk away with the award for best taste.
He added the favorite apple for making pie among Michigan chefs was Northern Spy because it is low in sugar and has a good consistency when cooked.
