Crab apple recipes

The small, sour fruit of the wild apple tree, crab apples are generally too tart to eat raw. They're more commonly made into a sweet jelly to accompany sweet breads or roasted meats and game and are also used to make crab apple wine. As they’re not grown commercially crab apples are not readily available to buy. You’re more likely to find them at farmers’ markets, farm shops or pick-your-own farms.
