OK so, I rarely work with apple so I’m sort of flying with one wing… but wanted a seasonal taffy apple juice to try out. Off the top of my head this is what I conjured up and I’m sure it could be better, but I’m drawing a blank now. Fuji FA, Apple Pie FA and Double Apple FW are the apple type flavors I have.
Any input on where I need to go here? My stash is open if you want to see what I have. Thanx in advance for your suggestions.
That sounds delicious. I love all these apple recipes that people are posting!! Fuji at 3 will be the most up front flavor. Have you worked with that before? I think it’ll be really good in a taffy mix. You probably don’t even need another apple. Unfortunately I only have 2/5 of those flavors but from the looks of it it seems like a solid start.
havent fiddled w/ apples too much but usually u want more then 1 apple if u want it to be main notes. The fuji is good and strong so be careful but looking at that mix and what i would want is not to have the apple stand out as much as 3% would make it, id do 1.5%. I dont vape taffy stuff but the rest of the flavor profile is all so familiar.
Not well versed in terms of flavor descriptions but FA’s caramel in my opinion is similar to those little caramel candies wrapped in cellophane. I prefer it over TPA’s version which seems more sweet…like what you’d get in a Milky Way candy bar
And thank you for the compliment!
I can lower the Fuji down and see what 1.5% does. I had it at 3 thinking it would have a better chance staying afloat against the other flavors.
Edit: Actually I may just do 2 batches at 1.5 and 3.0 for comparison.
FA Liquid Amber will give you a more baked apple. I also like FW Butterscotch Ripple added to FW Butter Pecan. Working on an Apple Pie for the fall so I am all over apples right now. Love Fuji for the fall apple flavor.
@TorturedZen start ultra low with Liquid Amber… It’s a very potent (and unique taste) flavor. Personally I haven’t been able to coax any kind of “baked effect” when using it with fruits until yet… But I’ve only tried three or so times. (Still need more experience with it)
Fuji is delicious, but yes, very strong. Being that you want a caramel apple or apple taffy, I would say it’s going to be a sweet spot around 2% (at least for my taste) and maybe pick up some cocoon (FA) which is actually a caramel apple base. Also, caramel toffee (HS) is phenomenal as far as caramels go. Rich and creamy, would be a nice trio adding to the caramel and dulce @ 1% but would maybe lower caramel to 1.25% just to balance. Recipe looks great tho man, wish you luck!
If anyone is interested in a cider doughnut recipe for the fall weather, check out my recipe “Autumn’s Silhouette” on ELR. I make it in huge batches because all my friends beg for it now that most have tried it lol.
