Popular Apple Varieties


BRAEBURN: crisp, firm, sweet, tart and spicy. They are a excellent eating apple; and make good pies, sauces and cider.

EMPIRE: these apples are a hybrid of MacIntosh and Red Delicious. They are juicy, soft and sweet. Empires are a very good choice for a eating apple and make a good pie. Stay away from making sauce and cider with this one.

FUJI: they are extra crisp and sweet-tart. Excellent eating apple, but not a good choice for pie or sauces. It's good for cider.

GALA: mildly sweet, fruity and thin skinned. Gala is another great choice for a eating apple. It is good for a pie but there are better choices out there. It is good for sauce and cider.

GOLDEN DELICIOUS: firm, very sweet, juicy and best when kept refrigerated. Very good eating apple and excellent for pies, sauce and cider.

GRANNY SMITH: crunchy, tart and juicy. They are a very good eating apple and are excellent for pies. Very good for sauce but stay away when making cider.

MACINTOSH: tender and sweet. They are a excellent choice for an eating apple. They make very good sauce. They make good pies and cider.

RED DELICIOUS: juicy and very sweet. They are a great eating apple, but use another kind for baking and cider.

ROME: grainy, sweet, soft and juicy. They are not a good eating apple, but are very good for pies. They are excellent for baked apples and make good sauce. Stay away from this apple if you want to make cider.

WINESAP: firm, tart, sweet-sour contrast. They make a good eating apple and are excellent for pies, baking, sauce and cider.

Another tip: If you do not have tart apples to bake with, use the sweeter apples and sprinkle lemon juice over them for tartness. Works every time.

4 apples - peeled, cored and sliced

HOMEMADE APPLE FRITTERS FROM SCRATCH

1-1/2 tsp baking powder
3 TBS sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1 egg, beaten
1/3 cup milk
1 TBS cinnamon
1/8 tsp nutmeg
1 cup chopped apples
1 cup canola oil
powdered sugar for dusting

Measure and sift all the dry ingredients. Beat the eggs and milk together and slowly incorporate the dry ingredients. Add the chopped apples.

In a heavy skillet or cast iron pan, heat the oil over medium high heat. Drop a teaspoon full of batter into the hot oil, and fry until golden brown --3 to 4 minutes on each side.

Remove fritter and drain on paper bag or towel. Cool and sprinkle with powdered sugar or roll in granulated sugar.

NOTE: You can eliminate the sugar and serve these fritters with pork roast. Awesome easy apple recipe.






HOMEMADE HOT APPLE CIDER

6 cups natural pressed apple cider (no sugar added)
1/4 cup pure maple syrup
2 cinnamon sticks
6 whole cloves
6 whole allspice berries
1 orange peel, cut into strips
1 lemon peel, cut into strips
2 McIntosh apples, chopped in small pieces

Pour the apple cider and pure maple syrup in a sauce pan. Add the cinnamon sticks, cloves, allspice berries, orange and lemon peel in the center of a washed square of cheesecloth - fold up the sides of the cheesecloth to enclose the bundle and tie with kitchen string.

Drop this spice bundle in with the apple cider mixture. (You may just let the spices float in the cider if you do not have a cheesecloth. Both ways are wonderful.)

Place the pan over moderate heat for 5-10 minutes, or until the cider is very hot but NOT boiling. Remove from the heat and discard the spice bundle. Add small pieces of apple in the bottom of the mug and pour in the hot cider.

Garnish with a fresh cinnamon stick if desired and you have one delicious easy apple recipe to share with friends and family.
