Apples come in a variety of colors and flavors. There are thousands of different types of apples grown in the U.S. and worldwide. Here are some popular varieties that we carry at Food Town and how they are best eaten:
With so many apple varieties, knowing which ones to choose for baking, cooking, and snacking can be hard. To make the best pies and other baked treats, apples need to be firm enough to hold together during the cooking process, such as Granny Smith. You want a nice crisp, sweet apple, such as Red Delicious or Gala, for snacking.
Apples can be used for applesauce, chopped in salads, baked in pies, pastries, cakes, chutneys, juices, and smoothies. Apples can also help ripen other fruits. You can place unripe avocados, tomatoes, and more in a bag with one apple to ripen them faster.
The good news is that apples are available year-round. Whether you’re baking a pie or packing the kid’s lunch, Food Town has many varieties of apples at great prices. Visit our colorful produce department and pick some today! (Read more here)
