The Best Apples for Baking

Not all apples are created equal when it comes to baking.

That's why picking the best apple for your recipe makes a difference.

The ideal baking apple is sweet & tart with a firm texture to stand up during baking.

Acidity is also important for balancing flavors in baked goods.

Baking apples are usually less sweet than eating apples.
