Also called broccoli raab, Choi sum and Chinese flowering cabbage, it is a great braising vegetable
Braeburns are sweet with a hint of tart, and a firmness that stores well. These traits plus the fact that they bake well have made them a very versatile apple.
An ideal dessert apple fresh or baked, add Braeburn’s spicy-sweet flavor to cobblers, tarts, cakes & pies.
Good-quality Braeburn apples will be firm with smooth, clean skin and have good color for the variety. Test the firmness of the apple by holding it in the palm of your hand. (Do not push with your thumb). It should feel solid and heavy, not soft and light.
Avoid product with soft or dark spots. Also if the apple skin wrinkles when you rub your thumb across it, the apple has probably been in cold storage too long or has not been kept cool.
