Sansa Apples

Sansa Apples
(Apples, Sansa) Sansa apples are a very delicious, sweet-tart early apple, and as with most early apples they should be eaten right after harvest and refrigerated to preserve their freshness. Their taste is similar to that of a Gala apple. Sansa apples originated in 1969 when a Japanese researcher, Dr. Yoshio Yoshida, sent pollen from the Akane variety to his colleague in New Zealand, Dr. Don McKenzie, and asked him to use it to cross-pollinate Gala blossoms, which were not grown in Japan, and Akane were not grown in New Zealand. The seeds that resulted from the cross were returned to Japan, where the young trees were grown until they produced fruit, but it wasn't until 1988 when they were first marketed. Now they are grown in the United States. We purchased these apples from a farm store in Columbia County, New York in 2015. We could not find any specific nutritional information for sansa apples.

Vegan FlagThe above recipe is in keeping with God's creation intent (Genesis 1:29-31): 'Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food. And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground-- everything that has the breath of life in it-- I give every green plant for food." And it was so. God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.' (NIV) Let no animal suffer or die that we may live!
