Using the right apples in your apple pie recipe can be a daunting but crucial task! There are 7,000+ varieties of apples and not all apples are equal when it comes to baking the perfect apple pie! The most important thing to do when choosing the right apples for your pies, is to choose a mix of firm tart and sweet varieties.
The opposing flavors will add depth to your pie and the firmness helps them to hold the shape whilst cooking – no-one likes a super mushy pie! The popular Granny Smith and the Pink Pearl are excellent tart options for your pie and will create a delicious taste when combined with a sweet Pink Lady or Golden Delicious apple.
