BEST APPLE FOR BAKING:There are so many kinds of apples to choose from these days but when it comes to baking with apples, make sure to use a kind good for baking. We love to use Granny Smith apples in our baked goods because they have a tart but very apple-y flavor. They also cook well, holding their shape when baked and don’t release as much water as some other varieties. Other apples that bake well would be:Pink Lady – a sweet, tart apple that will retain its shape when cooked. Great apple flavor, fresh or baked!Honeycrisp – a very crisp texture when fresh holds up during baking. They are great to eat fresh or using in baking.Braeburn – this is the apple with super concentrated flavor. It can get a little juicy when baked but not mushy. It’s a great apple to pair with strong flavors like cinnamon.Jonagold – a tart but still sweet apple. This variety of apple doesn’t tend to store well but will do fabulous in the oven. They’re usually in their peak during early fall.
