When I saw that this month’s tasting box from Old Orchard was going to be Apple Juice, I wanted to do something different. I jumped onto Pinterest and was pinning recipes that would work with this juice.
The first recipe I wanted to try was a copy cat of Fried Apples. I am not a green apple person, which this recipe called for… so I bought and used red for this recipe. I would say, feel free to use what you prefer. It’s still delicious.
