Use Apples in Recipes

One of the most popular recipes using apples is the pie. Apple pie has been an American favorite for generations. Whose grandma or mom doesn't have a special recipe for the crust and the filling? The most important thing though is that the pie always tastes delicious.

Use Apples in Favorite Recipes

There are several varieties of apples but there is a short list of apples to use in pies. One of the most popular apples for pies is the Gala apples. Gala apples hold their shape during cooking and provide natural sweetness so less sugar is required. Believe it or not there is such a thing as too much sugar in a pie. The apple pie filling needs to be thick and juicy but not syrupy sweet.

Granny Smith apples are tart. When you use Granny Smith apples for a pie you may need to add an extra pinch of sugar for taste. These apples are also good for cooking. If you want both tart and sweet you can mix these apples with a few Gala or Jonathon apples.

Apples work great in salads. One of the salads known for its apples is the Waldorf salad. To prevent browning you will want to add the apples right before you plan to eat the salad. If you plan to take a salad of this sort for your lunch, spritz the apples with a bit of lemon juice to prevent browning.

Apples can also be used in glazes for meats. Apples are often paired with pork chops and chicken. It doesn't make a difference if the apples are poached, sautéed or combined in a syrup like glaze with cinnamon. Apples also make great side dishes.

The apple has found its way into breads, muffins, yogurt, pancakes and many other foods. The best apple to choose for baked recipes is one that can withstand heat. Using this type of apple will make the recipe a success.

The Yellow Delicious apples work best in making applesauce, apple butter and apple cider. When making applesauce, the process is simple and can be done in small or large batches. When you plan to make a lot of applesauce you can use a bushel of assorted apples. The good thing about homemade applesauce is it contains only what you put into it. Homemade applesauce doesn't have any preservatives or artificial flavorings.

Apples are good as they are, in a recipe favorite or have some fun and create new and exciting recipes. What are you waiting for? Go get some apples and create your own culinary delight.
