Classic Apples #1 – Egremont Russet

17 Mar

Apparently, this was ‘raised’ by Lord Egremont in the 1870s in a place called Petworth, Sussex, England. The fact that a Lord raised it makes it even more of a classic since he probably examined the skin with a monocle. This is a dry, crisp apple and is often said to be ‘nutty’. Despite the dryness of the skin this apple is a winner and is a belter in salads.
