Visit Central Market for a Cooking Class with Envy Apples! #BiteAndBelieve #CookingwithEnvy

Envy apples are in the spotlight lately because people love these apples! You may wonder what is so special about an apple. Once you taste an Envy apple, you'll know part of the answer. They taste delicious. The other part of the Envy apple equation is that they have a have a naturally higher citric acid content that prevents the ‘browning’ enzyme from activating. This means they are VERY slow to brown!  They are perfect for kid’s lunches, picnics, salads, charcuterie boards and party platters, especially since they will look great for hours! In today's post, I'll tell you about how these trendy apples work their magic, tell you about an upcoming cooking class with Envy apples at Central Market, and share a crave-worthy recipe.

As a Mom and an Engineer, I was curious about how these apples taste so delicious and why they don't brown as quickly.  Fortunately, the answer comes from Mother Nature and not weird science or questionable additives. According to grower Rick Derray, the EnvyTM naturally boasts higher levels of an antioxidant (citric acid) that prevent the enzyme polyphenol oxidase from reacting with oxygen, resulting in it’s slow to brown feature. Pretty cool, right?!

Now that I've share information about Envy apples and the upcoming cooking classes, let me share a recipe!

Recipe: Apple​ ​&​ ​Bacon​ ​Corn​ ​Fritters​ ​with​ ​a​ ​Habanero​ ​Honey​ ​Glaze 
Makes​ ​about​ ​10​ ​corn​ ​fritters

For​ ​the​ ​fritters:
  • 6​ ​slices​ ​bacon,​ ​cooked​ ​and​ ​rough​ ​chopped 2​ ​cups​ ​apples,​ ​small​ ​diced
  • 3⁄4​ ​cup​ ​all​ ​purpose​ ​flour
  • 1⁄2​ ​cup​ ​cornmeal
  • 2​ ​tsp​ ​baking​ ​powder
  • 2​ ​tsp​ ​kosher​ ​salt
  • 3⁄4​ ​cup​ ​whole​ ​milk
  • 1​ ​egg,​ ​whisked

For​ ​the​ ​honey​ ​glaze:
  • 1⁄4​ ​cup​ ​honey
  • 1​ ​habanero,​ ​seeds​ ​and​ ​stem​ ​removed,​ ​cut​ ​in​ ​half

Will​ ​need:
  • A​ ​slotted​ ​spoon
  • 1​ ​large​ ​container​ ​canola

How​ ​To:
  1. Heat​ ​a​ ​medium​ ​sized​ ​pot​ ​of​ ​canola​ ​oil​ ​to​ ​350​ ​degrees​ ​and​ ​heat​ ​your​ ​oven​ ​to​ ​250​ ​degrees​ ​to keep​ ​batches​ ​of​ ​fritters​ ​warm.
  2. In​ ​a​ ​small​ ​bowl,​ ​microwave​ ​honey​ ​and​ ​habanero​ ​for​ ​15​ ​seconds.​ ​​​Allow​ ​to​ ​steep​ ​while​ ​frying​ ​off fritters.
