Apple Season In Full Swing

Apple season is in full swing and favorite recipes are resurfacing in family kitchens. For the very best taste, it's important to pick the right apple for the job. Below are some guidelines.

For eating:

If you like them sweet, choose Red Delicious, Golden Delicious, Criterion, or Gala. If you prefer your apples tart, try Granny Smith, Jonathan, Macintosh, or Rome Beauty.

For salads:

Just about any variety will do, but Red Delicious, Gala, Golden Delicious, Granny Smith, Jonathan and Pippin usually top the list.

For pie:

Golden Delicious and Pippin make excellent pies, but Granny Smith, Jonathan, Winesap, Jonagold and Gravenstein are very good.

For sauce:

Try Gravenstein, Golden Delicious, Granny Smith, Jonathan, Pippin or Macintosh.

For baking (whole):

Rome Beauty are considered best, followed closely by Golden Delicious, and Jonagold. Used often in salads and desserts, apples provide entrees with delicious flavor, too, as these recipes attest.
