Last week, Dominique Ansel (the well-known inventor of the Cronut) brought his team to Princeton to pick apples at Terhune Orchards. While at the Van Kirk Road orchard, he and his team posted photos on Instagram of the 125 pounds of Macoun, Jonathan and Gala apples that they picked to make salted caramel apple pies. The pies will be sold at Pie Night on October 1, 2015 at Dominque Ansel Kitchen in New York City.
Ansel noted on Instagram … “Using freshly harvested apples we hand picked from Terhune Orchards — it’s the best pie I’ve ever had. Excited to have people taste the family recipes from our team.”
For those who didn’t make it to the sold out event, Dominique Ansel Kitchen will be offering Salted Caramel Apple Pie made with apples from Terhune Orchards as a special order item available for in-store pick up from Oct 3 through 18 online at www.dominiqueanselkitchen.com/shop. Their website notes that there is a limited supply. Pies will be made fresh on the day of pick up.
