                                         At this time of year we have  APPLES !!! This fruit tells us fall is here.

                              There are many kinds of apples. Here are a few suggestions as to what

                               kind is best for whatever you may be picking/buying the apples for:


                               When baking apples they should hold their shape. Granny Smith is the

                               most popular choice, and Pink Lady a close second because of its

                               sweetness and tartness.

                               Gala and Fuji apples are perfect for cakes and muffins because of their

                               firmness and sweetness.

                               APPLESAUCE OR PUREE;

                               The McIntosh, Jonathan, and crisp Empire are all excellent choices. All

                               three cook down to a very flavorful sauce or puree.


                               Red Delicious, Cortland, and the Empire are the most chosen of all.

                               The reason  being they will stay white in your salad, have thin skin and

                                have a mild taste.


                                Red Delicious and Golden Delicious are very popular. If you like crunch

                                Braeburn and Gala are the preferred  choice.Fuji is also a good snacking

                                apple because it sweet, and is perfect to eat with a mild cheese.


                               Apples are nutritious  and are loaded with vitamins. I am sure you heard--

                              " An apple a day keeps the doctor away".

                               There are many uses for apples that I did not mention. A book written by

                               AMY TRAVERSO, titled The Apple Lover's Cookbook is very informative,

                               especially if you want to know what  apples you can "pair  together" when

                                making desserts etc.

                              I hope you will take advantage and use these "tidbits", the next time you

                               buy  your apples.

                              just read, but leave me your comment at the bottom of the page.
