The “Mac” is an Ontario classic, discovered by John McIntosh on a farm near Morrisburg in the early 1800’s. It has a tart flavour which sweetens as it ripens. Firm and crisp with a white, juicy flesh, it’s ideal for eating fresh. Unpeeled, the McIntosh also makes a lovely pink applesauce. Because of its high water content, it is not recommended for baking unless you prefer a very soft apple pie. If that is you, bake away!
Pair that new crisp Mac with this apple dip! Quick and simple, yet delicious.
