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.
