Yellow Newtown Pippin

The Yellow Newtown Pippin is one of the oldest American apple varieties from the 1750’s.  It has a yellow-green skin with a crisp, slightly tart flavor but sweeter than a Granny Smith and is one of the most widely commercially used apples for cider.  They are a good keeper and the flavor becomes sweeter and more mellow a month to two months after it has been harvested. It holds its shape so well that it is one of the best apples for baking.  I recently made an apple pie for my best friend’s birthday and the first bite was tart followed by a sweetness which spread through my mouth like happiness. Even her 3 year old son loved the pie. His face scrunched up when the tartness hit him but then bloomed into a smile with the sweetness that followed. Look for them now in stores through late January to early February.
