View Full Version : What kind of apples to use ......
12-29-2008, 12:55 AM
i want to make an apple cobbler or crisp. i saw a great recipe in the 'i am grateful recipe book' but..... i was wondering what variety of apple works best for a raw pie or cobbler. i would be dehydrating it to warm and wilt the apples.
i would love to hear from anyone thats made pies or crisps.

I would use a "sweet" apple like a Fuji.

Fuji or Honeycrisps, since they are super-sweet and in season until only February.

Cameos might be nice as well.

thanx guys... i was thinking a sweet apple but then i was also wondering about texture. since i want to dehydrate it down a bit...it would be nice to have an apple that might get softer sooner in the dehydrator.
would a crisp apple get softer more easily that one with a more mealy texture?
for eating i love a crisp apple but for this 'baking' process which would be best?

The fujis I am getting from the farmer's markets are very crisp, sweet and juicy. I am wondering about the water content as well for something like you're doing. I have not started dehydrating, so I don't have that experience. I'll be interested in what choice you make.
