This is what BonAppetit.com said about our Spiced Crab Apples on October 31, 2012--
"Spiced Crab Apples from Coldwater Canyon Provisions
A big brown turkey needs something to jazz it up. These pickled crab apples from Los Angeles look lovely mounded around a holiday bird, and their pickly-sweet flavor cuts through holiday heaviness."

We obtain all our produce fresh from family farms who sell at farmers markets in Los Angeles.

These beautiful crab apples are about the size of ping-pong balls, and will look gorgeous surrounding your holiday or Thanksgiving or Christmas turkey, goose, roast, or even Tofurky.

There is some color variation in the apples, some are almost all tan, some are almost all rosy red. All are delicious!

You can eat them like regular apples, and some folks eat them core and all.

When the crab apples have been eaten, don't through away the light syrup in the jar! You can simmer it down a bit for very special sauce for vanilla ice cream, or add it directly to a mug of steaming cider. Some of our friends add it to cocktails in place of simple syrup. Woo-Hoo!

Ingredients: organic crab apples, cane sugar, vinegar, cinnamon, allspice, cloves
