Golden Reinette is not a nice apple to eat out of your hand, it is sour and not so pretty but it is perfect to use in the kitchen for apple pies and apple sauce. My father has an apple tree in the garden and we could eat from this tree the entire winter. —Janneke Verheij

Smiling...I have seen the Golden Reinette at Sligro. So I'll have to try them when I get tired of Jonagold.....

thank you ladies, I'm happy you like it. If you run into Golden Reinette once, their are worth trying but of course it's no problem to use another apple..

I really like cranberries with pork, this combination of flavors seems awesome. The picture is so pretty, too, it is stuffed and rolled so nicely!

I've never had a Golden Reinette before. But I'd gladly sub another apple to try this recipe.
