Thanks to Envy Apples, available June through mid-October and from New Zealand, these burgers are not only lean but have a great balance of sweet and savory in every bite. The apples are a bright red color with a very crisp interior, sweet in flavor, and naturally resist oxidation when cut (so perfect for the kid’s lunches, and fruit plates).
