“Applelicious! . I had a drink that I wanted to create into a jam. TheTezon Anejo is creamy and smooth, with tastes of rich butterscotch and vanilla, with notes of citrus and mellow oak matching well with the apples.This is lovely over pancakes, french toast, ice cream. Stuff it into a crepe or thumb print cookies. Fill apple turnovers fritters. Dot in a cheese cake before baking or top a cheesecake at serving. Swirl it into a coffee cake. Top a brie wrap in puff pastry and bake.”

  2. As you dice add the apples stirring them in so they don`t discolor.
