Learning how to cook apples is not as simple as coming across good apple recipes. A cook needs to know the different types of apples. For years eating apples had to be crisp, fresh and juicy and cooking apples and baking apples had to cook up like “mush”. I agree with the eating apples but I do not like my cooked apples to be mush. Of course, this is a matter of personal preference.
The best apple pie recipes that I have ever eaten were made with
McIntosh apples which are recommended for eating not cooking. When these
pies were served, the apples were tender but held their shape. The
flavor was wonderful and I enjoyed knowing that the pies were made with
apples and not applesauce.
Mentioning applesauce, I even like chunkier applesauce recipes. Like I said, this is personal preference, but again when I eat applesauce or cooked apples I do not want mush. The Granny Smith apples have long been recommended as a great cooking apple. Recently I baked some of these and they quickly cooked up to thinner than mush. When you know how to cook apples you will discover your own preferences and taste.
have found the recommended cooking apples and baking apples to be very
good and flavorful in apple butter recipes where you want them to cook
down into a spread. These are also very flavorful and add moisture to
cake recipes, cookie recipes and sweet breads. When you know how to cook apples you learn which ones you like for your recipes.
