Stuffed apples from Vilabertran
Poma de relleno

Stuffed apples are a typical dessert in the Empordą region which are at their best during the August and September festivals. In Vilabertran, it has been traditional to eat cooking apples in the interval during the dance at the festivals for centuries. Many people in the region travelled expressly to the village of Vilabertran to enjoy this exquisite dessert. The village of Vilabertran inherited this tradition and has managed to maintain it and now transmits this knowledge to new generations thanks to the fair that is held every year in mid-September.

Preparation time: a short period: only August and September.

Ingredients: Capēana apples (Verda donzella or Reinette de l’Empordą), sweet sausage meat, egg, anise, toasted almond, lemon, biscuits (digestive, tea biscuit or similar), sugar, flour, olive oil, cinnamon sticks, plain chocolate and caramelised sugar.

Characteristics of the product: the variety of apples used has very firm, compact, consistent flesh and can withstand a long cooking time. They are prepared and cooked in the traditional way. For two or three days they are cooked over a low heat in various sessions to obtain the optimum result.

Packaging: transparent boxes with several units (from 2 to 7 units).

Storage: keep cool.
