Flavor Profile: Lemony-tart elements with grassy-fresh character, perfumey aroma, very juicy.

Flavor Pairings:

The lemony, perfumey nature of this apple's flavor makes it a versatile partner in the kitchen. Braeburn's flavor holds up to, and complements, a wide range of seasonings such as herbs (particularly basil, tarragon and mint), nuts (especially pecans), balsamic vinegar and warm spices such as cinnamon, allspice and nutmeg.

This is a wine-friendly apple, making it a good choice for recipes that will be served as an appetizer or main course accompanied by wine. It pairs particularly well with Riesling, Chianti, Merlot and Pinot Noir wines.

Preparation Ideas:

  • Add finely diced Braeburn apple to a couscous salad with mint and raisins.
  • Toss shredded or thinly sliced Braeburn apple with shredded cabbage and fennel bulb (with a mayonnaise/apple cider vinegar dressing) for an interesting twist on coleslaw.
  • Dip slices of Braeburn in classic Swiss cheese fondue, in addition to the traditional cubes of bread.
