Apples from the Tree (or Store) to your table

Apples are a favorite fall treat. Slice and eat raw, bake in your favorite pie, be it tart or sweet, sprinkled with cinnamon sugar or drizzled with caramel sauce, there’s an apple for every taste. According to US Apple Association, here are some favorites: For eating raw, Granny Smith, Cortland and Braeburn are tops, others that rank high are Idared, Jonathan and Baldwin. For a sweet raw apple, Golden Delicious, Honey Crisp and McIntosh score the highest. For the next sweet top winners try Fugi, Empire and Gala. For pies, top contenders are Granny Smith, Baldwin and Golden Delicious. Other good pie apples are Pinklady, Braeburn and Crispin. Like to slice up and eat with a dip? Some ideas for dip – Marshmallow cream mixed with crushed pineapple or Cool Whip with strawberry yogurt mixed in. Of course you can always order Food for Thought’s caramel dip!
