Best Apples to Bake with:
When it comes to apples you can use your favorite type but I wanted to share which apples are best for baking.
Granny Smith: These are my favorite to use when baking. I use them when making pies, crisps, and tarts.
Pink Lady: These apples also work great for pies and work great in cakes, breads, and bars.
Honey Crisp: I use these apples in pies, tarts, and bars.
Red Delicious: These apples are a little softer and I like to use them for sauces, cakes, and butter.
Golden Delicious: These apples are also little softer and best in sauces, cakes, and butter.
When shopping you want to look for apples that have no bruises or holes. The best way to tell if an apple is fresh, is the smell! Fresh ripe apples will have a strong and delicious apple aroma.

How Many Apples do I need?
When baking with apples is great to now about how many you will need.
To get 2 cups of chopped or sliced apples you will need 3 medium sized apples.
Since apples can vary in size it's good to know that 2 large apples can be replaced by 3 medium apples or 4 small apples.
How to Store Apples:
If you do end up buying to many apples, then you can store them for snacking or more baking.
Whole apples: We store our whole apples in the fridge in a draw that is usually around 35-40 degrees F and they stay good for 2 weeks.
Sliced apples: If you already sliced your apples, you could store them in an airtight container for 3-4 days in the fridge.
They can go brown easily and you can try and prevent that with these steps.
- Salt water: Soak sliced apples in salt water (½ teaspoon salt to 2 cups of water) for 2-3 minutes. Then rinse them and store.
- Lemon juice: Toss sliced apples in lemon juice. This will prevent browning for a few hours.
