Smart Shopping Tips
  • The freshest apples are available from September to November although most varieties are available throughout the year.
  • Purchase well-colored apples that are firm and smooth with no bruises.
  • Apples don’t need to be refrigerated unless you don't plan to eat them soon. Refrigerate in the crisper drawer away from other produce, as they give off a gas which will speed ripening.
Cooking & Serving Tips:
  • Once apples are cut they will start to discolor if left open to the air. To avoid discoloration, dip them in any citrus juice such as orange or lemon. Pineapple juice also works.
  • Granny Smith, Honeycrisp and Golden Delicious apples are great for this recipe. These apples hold their shape well when cooked and their sweet flavor gets stronger when baked in pies, cakes and pastries.
