Questions about apple and raspberry topping

Apples and raspberries make a great and delectable addition to your breakfast bowl. If you want to know more about using them as a topping, keep reading.

How can you use apples and raspberries as a topping?
You can use apples and raspberries as a topping in their fresh, raw state to provide a burst of natural sweetness and texture. Alternatively, they can be simmered down into a raspberry compote or a velvety apple puree. If you are feeling fancy, how about some caramelised apples for a subtle sweet note?
What type of apple is best as topping for skyr or yoghurt?
If you are a fan of a sweet yet slightly tangy punch, you cannot go wrong with Honeycrisp or Fuji apples. For a sharper, more tart taste, Granny Smith apples would work well. If you prefer apples with a softer texture and rich, aromatic kick, Golden Delicious are your best bet.
Do you use frozen or fresh raspberries as a topping?
Fresh and frozen raspberries can both be wonderful toppings. If you love the crisp texture and fresh taste, go for fresh raspberries. However, if you are thinking of making a saucy compote or a luscious sauce as your topping, frozen raspberries really shine. They break down beautifully when heated, creating a perfectly sweet and tangy treat. They are also delicious frozen directly on top for a fresh, frozen, cold kick.

Delicious ways to use apples and raspberries on skyr

Fresh apples and raspberries offer a wonderful crunch and zing, but there are far more ways to use these as toppings.

You can caramelise the apples by cooking them gently in a bit of butter and sugar to give them a deep, sweet flavour and a slightly crispy exterior. Or make a raspberry compote by simmering down the raspberries with a touch of sugar until they release their juices and form a sweet-tart sauce.
