How to Choose the Best Apples

Fall means apples and apple picking – but what’s the best way to use all of those beautiful fall fruits? Amy Traverso’s book The Apple Lovers Cookbook is designed to help people branch out from the usual McIntosh and Red Delicious (although she likes those just fine).

The book includes a whopping fifty-nine apple varieties with descriptions of their flavor, history and how best to use them in the kitchen. Traverso says, “When you begin tasting them and realizing how varied and food-friendly they are, it becomes addictive! I keep saying that I think I could write a second apple cookbook with entirely new material.” 

Read on for her recommendations for the best apples to make applesauce, pies, candied apples and more!
