How I SweeTango
I’ve been a huge fan of SweeTango apples ever since they debuted a few years ago. It’s a juicy apple that has unique touch of spice with just the right honey finish, but they’re only around for a few months every year.
Here’s how I eat them:
- Frankly, they are killer ‘under-cooked’ in a dessert, which is precisely why I came up with this fried apple hand pie recipe. Best part? They’re individual servings, so you don’t have to share!
- Add a diced SweeTango to this curried chicken salad.
- Better yet, slice the apples into thick chips and use them in lieu of a cracker for tuna or chicken salad.
- Use them in this awesome (and healthy!) apple cider roast pork shoulder.
- Do you like apples and peanut butter? Great. Then you’ll love a sliced SweeTango with almond butter.
- Make this sandwich: roasted ham, goat milk brie and sliced SweeTango sandwich.
- Elevate a cheese plate with sliced SweeTango—it’s the perfect compliment to an aged cheddar cheese, Manchego or aged Camembert.
- SweeTango apple & Brussels sprout coleslaw anyone?
- Try them in this apple-raisin crumb cake.
- Cut a SweeTango apple into matchsticks, toss with thinly sliced kale, Manchego cheese and lemon vinaigrette. It’s the perfect salad & the dressing is a breeze to make: 9T olive oil, 3T lemon juice, minced herbs (tarragon/parsley/chive), 1t dijon mustard, 1t sugar, 1T banyuls vinegar. Whisked to emulsify. Boom, you’re good to go.
- Last but not least, I can dig into a plain ol’ SweeTango all on its own.
I know what you’re thinking: Sounds great, but where do I buy them apples? Most grocery stores carry SweeTango apples for their very short season.
