Apple primer

As I wrote about for Uptake this week, we stopped by Gizdich Ranch in Watsonville last weekend to pick up a bushel of apples

for my annual apple sauce making project. Gizdich nicely provides a worksheet to help figure out which apples you need. Here is a brief summary:

Eating apples (not good for cooking)

  • Honey Crisp
  • Royal Gala
  • Red Delicious
  • Braeburn
  • Fuji

Cooking apples (good for sauce or butter)

  • Pinova
  • Golden Delicious
  • Newton Pippin
  • Mutsu
  • Granny Smith

Pie apples

  • Golden Delicious
  • Newton Pippin
  • Mutsu
  • Granny Smith

I came home with a 1/2 bushel each of Pinova and Golden Delicious. At the moment, the boxes are sitting in my garage, giving off the most wonderful aroma. Soon, very soon, I will begin the saucing and buttering process. Then my kids will once again be happy!
