If you stop by a souvenir shop in Aomori, you'll see many apple pies being sold by various companies. But the originator is still Kininaru-Ringo. Nowadays, similar products are sold all over the country, and even in Shinshu (Nagano), which is far away, there is a product called "Marugoto Ringo Pie".

I looked for this Kinininaru-Ringo in neighboring prefectures such as Aomori, but for some reason I couldn't find it, so I finally went to Aomori and got it. And in that shop, the similar whole apple Ringo Pie was wider than the other one, and this Kinininaru-Ringo was secretly placed in the corner of the shop.

From the red box, I took a large, round pie and cut it in two. Then, the scent of apple jam wafted through the air, and inside was a pudding with a whole apple. The hollowed out core of the apple was also filled with a moist dough of apple and some kind of jam.

When I tried it, it had the texture of crispy boiled apples, not apple jam, and to put it simply, the filling was like a three-dimensional apple pie. For some reason, this is what makes it feel like a luxury item, and it's also delicious. That's why it's so popular.

Also, the idea of wrapping a whole apple in a pie seems to be a typical Aomori person with a big heart.

Many people may not notice this, but I think "Raguno" of Raguno-SASAKI means dairy.
