Fuji Apple and Cheese Pairing

Fuji Apple and Cheese Pairing

This fall, we are pairing crisp Fuji apples with tart cheese and a decadent fig jam. Fuji apples are known for their firm texture, but it’s their intense sweetness that makes them the perfect apple to serve alongside strong, salty cheeses for an easy, yet sophisticated appetizer for your next gathering. Don’t skip the fig jam, as it adds a lovely rich layer to the pairing that balances out the acidity in the apples.

YIELD: 6-8 people
