Ha’s Apple Farm is a mainstay at California’s farmers’ markets. Their well-loved Fuji apples, grown in the Tehachapi Mountains, are crisp and sweet, but it’s their jams, fruit butters and dried fruits that have made a loyal fan out of me.
Their latest product, Walnut and Fruit Brittle, has me totally obsessed. Made with peaches, apples, and pears, the walnut-encrusted glob of fruity splendor is one of the best things I’ve ever put in my mouth. The fruit part has a sticky, chewy, fruit roll up texture, and the mass of walnuts is affixed with a coat in fruit-derived syrupy sweetness. Such a treat when I need that 3 o’clock sugar fix.
The best part is that there’s no added sugar, so if you can manage to eat just a bit, it’s a relatively healthy snack. Good luck with that.
I know for sure that the Ha’s sell at Alhambra Farmers’ Market on Sundays and others throughout the week. You can also order Ha’s products on their website–unfortunately, they’re not offering their fruit brittle online yet, but I bet if you wrote them, they’d send you some.
