Our GoldRush dwarf apple tree finally got in the ground this year. If you have not tried GoldRush apples, you should.
It is one of the best apples I have ever tasted, crisp, not too tart and not too sweet. Just right. Like the flavor of 5 apples packed into one. Stores for a long time.
In short: The Perfect Apple
Cross pollinates with Liberty (among others)
I baked a cake with GoldRush apples today.
150 grams butter
1/3 cup organic, unrefined sugar
3 large apples
1 tsp cinnamon
A little more than 1 & 1/8 cup flour (but not a full 1 & 1/4)
Melt the butter, mix with sugar and beat until fluffy. Add one egg and mix until smooth.
Add flour and mix in well.
Spread on bottom of an oiled and floured pie form.
Cut apples in slices and put in plastic bag with cinnamon and shake until evenly covered with cinnamon.
Stick the slices as close together as you can throughout the dough mixture.
Bake at 350ºF for 40 minutes.
