‘Fresh, juicy, Styrian’ runs the popular Austrian advertising slogan. Over 80% of all apples picked in Austria come from Styria. The Styrian apple is a real powerhouse – not only is it delicious (yet low in calories), it’s also packed with vitamins! A very versatile fruit, the apple is of course eaten raw all year round, but also made into lots of other products too. Whether it’s juice, cordial, cider, liqueur, jams or schnapps and brandies. Apples appear in restaurants on every course of the menu, from cider soup, to meats braised in cider, to entire menus made up of apple dishes. Apple desserts come in many different varieties, from the classic apple strudel to elegant sweets such as apple tart or apple ice cream.
