Apples to Apples

Apple season is in full swing! You can smell it in the air. The cool breeze, bonfires, football and the amber shades of leaves all communicate to us that it is officially fall! Fall is one of my favorite seasons, for more than just the colorful leaves; I love it for the seasonal food. Pumpkins, squash, brussel sprouts, pomegranates and APPLES!

Apples come in many different flavors and forms. What type of apple is ideal for a snack? What varietal of apple is scrumptious in an apple pie?

Apple Varietal How to use it Taste
Red Delicious Snacks Slightly
sweet and crunchy
Golden
Delicious
Snacks/Salads/Baking Mellow
and sweet
Fuji
(Very popular)
Snacks Big, super-sweet, and crisp
Granny
Smith
Baking/Snacks/Sandwiches Crunchy
and very tart
Gala
(my favorite!)
Snacks/Salad Aromatically sweet and crisp
Braeburn Snacks/Baking/Salad Rich,
sweet/tart, crunchy

Not only are apples juicy and scrumptious, they are good for you too! Apples are high in fiber, antioxidants, and are only about 90 calories for a medium-sized apple. Get creative with your apple use this time of year. Try new recipes such as H3’s Spiced Apple Compote on H3daily.com.

As always check out your local Farmer’s Market to purchase local fresh juicy apples!
