How To: Pick the best apples for pie

Not all apples are created equal.

The best apples for baking keep their form when cooking, we want texture, not mush! The ideal flavor profile for an apple pie would be a combination of sweet and tart. Granny Smith are traditionally the go-to apples for baking. However, heirloom varieties offer plenty of other options to bring a little excitement to your pie. The next time you’re planning on baking an apple pie, try something new with Pink Lady, Mutsu, Rome Beauty, Pink Pearl, or even Honeycrisp apples.
