    The U.S. Apple Association shares facts and recipe ideas for the Cortland apple.

    Female Speaker: Here is the Cortland apple, founded more than 120 years ago by horticulturalists in New York State. It has a yellow green skin with lots of red and even bluish accents. Beautiful and tart, it's a tender apple that browns slower than most when sliced. So it's a smart choice for serving up as a snack or in a salad. You will mainly find this apple in the East and Midwest in the fall through early winter.

    I love my Cortland apple topped with buttermilk, blue cheese and chopped walnuts. Walnuts, like apples, are known to fight age-related cognitive decline. Genius! And mounting research suggests any oxidants found in all apples help reduce risk of disease like cancer, type 2 diabetes, even asthma. Good health and great taste, you can't go wrong with the Cortland apple.
