Egremont Russet Apple Juice
A classic English apple with an initial sweet flavour, “nutty” undertones and a slight dry aftertaste which balances it beautifully.
Egremont Russet is from the Victorian era and is popular with discerning apple lovers who appreciate its unique flavour and apearance. The skin is entirely covered with “russet”, an attractive gold colour flecked with yellow. This is an apple that dares to be different! Egremont Russet has many of the characteristics which mark out a good apple, harmony of flavour and texture, and a good balance between sweetness and sharpness.
It is a medium-sized apple. The flesh is moist rather than juicy. Traditionally described as “nutty”, the flavour is more delicate than most varieties and quite sweet. Both the flavour and the soft flesh are reminiscent of a firm pear. Yet Egremont Russet is surprisingly versatile, working well in savoury salads for example, and a popular partner for cheese. Egremont Russet is a great alternative to pear in a blue cheese and walnut salad.
