Yummy healthy apple trifle with the best Danish Apples
The apples used for this apple trifle recipe are bought in my local supermarket that offers so many delicious organic products. I love my little local store. It’s actually the one supermarket in Denmark that has the highest percentage of organic products. And it’s right next to my house. Nice! So this is were, I buy most of my vegetables and dairy products. Meat, I buy online from local organic farmers.
And the apples used are from a small Danish island called Fejø that I actually visited this summer, when the apples weren’t quite ready yet. But now they are indeed! I’ll just show you some pictures from my island visit below, just because it was sooo0 pretty to wander around the apple orchards, when everything was blooming.
