South Tyrol is a region that has countless qualities: history, tradition, nature, landscapes…
It also has a “tasty” side to fulfil the needs of the greediest tourists.

The favourable climate, the fertile soil and an average of 300 sunny days per year allow this land to produce a wide variety of fruits, vegetables, herbs, as well as natural, dairy and – in general - gastronomic products.

The apple is undoubtedly the most representative of this area.
The fruit is used for a great number of recipes, either sweet or savoury.

Who doesn’t know, for example, the strudel (meaning “whirl” in German)?
A mixture of apples, bread crumbs, sugar, cinnamon, raisin and a drop of grappa is spread on a layer of rolled-out dough (sweet or savoury). The layer is then rolled up, brushed with a mixture of butter and egg yolk and baked.
As an alternative, there are the apple fritters: apple slices are sprinkled with sugar and cinnamon, immersed in a batter and fried in hot oil or lard.
To prepare another delicious dessert, you can hollow out some apples by removing the core and fill them with a mixture of jam, ground walnuts, raisins, sugar, cinnamon, butter, 4 teaspoons of orange liqueur and 4 teaspoons of white wine.
In addition, there are many other homemade cakes prepared with diverse fruits (apple, cherry, apricot, plum), that are delicious and can be consumed as a simple, healthy snack by children.
Apples are also used to prepare savoury dishes.
According to a recipe, for example, the cornmeal mush can be mixed with some slices of apple, previously cooked for about 10 minutes in a small amount of water with a pinch of cinnamon. The final product can be sprinkled with icing sugar before serving.
As an alternative, you can prepare an omelette filled with raisins and apples (cooked in a small amount of water with sugar) and sprinkle it with icing sugar before serving.

Well… not only excursions and winter sports, but also sweet and delicious moments to “taste” the Ladin culture.
Unforgettable experiences for your palate.
