It’s only mid-September but I’ve been enjoying apples for months –thanks to these early varieties.
- Delightfully crisp Gala are super crunchy and sweet with rosy skin. They’re good for applesauce or snacking.
- Streaked pale green and red Honeycrisp are slightly tart and fabulous for baking or applesauce.
- Red and shiny with a touch of green, MacCoun have the best of everything – sweet, tart, crunch. Fabulous for vegetable, chicken or tuna salads
- Petite, Early McIntosh have the aroma of an orchard and are perfect for little hands (my kids gobble them up). They make a sweet and delicious pie, too.

When you think of apples, two classic combinations come to mind: apples and cinnamon and apples with peanut butter. Who doesn’t love a hot, gooey apple cinnamon cobbler? Or some crisp, fresh apples dipped in creamy peanut butter? These popular pairings are certainly delicious, but the repertoire of our tart and fruity friend certainly does not end there.
This week, we are highlighting some ingredients you might not have thought to pair with apples, but that nonetheless make for a perfect—not to mention tasty—marriage. I now pronounce you apple and wife. You may cook the bride.

Now apple season is in full swing, there’s even more reason to get your “apple a day”—and then some. According to the US Apple Association, US orchards produce nearly 100 varieties of apples, but 15 varieties make up about 90 percent of production. Those 15 include Braeburn, Crispin, Empire, Fuji, Gala, Ginger Gold, Golden Delicious, Granny Smith, Honey Crisp, Idared, Jonagold, Jonathan, McIntosh, Red Delicious, and Rome apples. For more details on their respective taste and textures, check out the US apple association’s chart
In October, Braeburn, Crispin, Idared, and Jonagold apples are just starting their harvest season. While most apple varieties stay in season for many months, harvest for the Ginger gold ends in Novermber, so grab them while you can!

- The ultimate fall salad.
I’m an apple-a-day kind of girl: I just can’t get enough of that sweet, crunchy, sometimes tart snack that comes in a myriad of different varieties. Apples are portable, satisfying, pair wonderfully with peanut butter, and travel well (I always have one in my carry-on). But sometimes I’m looking for another way to enjoy my apples, which brought me to create this sweet, savory, chewy and crunchy wheat berry salad.

This Food Network Kitchens’ version is true to the classic: crisp apples, crunchy celery, raisins and walnuts. All of that is held together with a honey, mayo and yogurt blend (the last two are low fat to slim down this heavy hitter). For some variety, mix up the apples — maybe Gala and Granny Smith for a tart twist. Or make this a holiday dish by trading the raisins for dried cranberries.
