Apple Chart

There are apples, apples everywhere this time of year.  While everyone has their favorite, this post is prompted by a sweet treat I devoured yesterday.

My friend, Corinne, invited me to a picnic lunch on her patio (we had a gorgeous Fall day: full sun and 68 degrees!) and for dessert she had bought a giant caramel apple.  I noticed that the packaging said, "Honey Crisp Caramel Apple."  I had never seen the apple variety specified on a dessert other than pie before, but I now I know was delicious!  If I ever make my own caramel apples, I will use Honey Crisps for sure!

I am including an apple chart so that you can print it and take it with you to the farmer's market or grocery store.  It specifies the best apples for salads, pies, snacking, baking - the perfect little summary created by the U.S. Apple Association.

Remember, "An apple a day keeps the doctor away!"

Oh, how funny! I saw Honey Crisps in the store the other day and wondered if you could use them for baking and thought it would be so nice to have a chart for my purse. This is wonderful. Thank you!

I'm so glad, Elaine. That was just what I wanted to happen!
