  • I just can't take an apple article seriously when it leads with red delicious. They are so insipid when compared with a whole range of other apples. Currently I'm eating galas here in washington state, but waiting for the others to get ripe.
  • I only read this last page of comments but I agree with so many others that Honey Crisp is my favorite. Love this time of year in Upstate NY when apples are plentiful!

    I write a blog regarding OAS. It is mostly recipes that I have modified to be safe for OAS sufferers. As a fellow sufferer, I hope it helps!

    Love, love, love honeycrisp apples. But the problem is I can't eat any other variety now. Nothing comes close in taste and crispness
  • The microwave tip is very useful. My favorite apples are the pink lady and granny smith.

    Thanks for the microwave tip! When apples are sitting around until "past their prime" I usually bake an apple cake but it's a lot of effort and really, what I want is the apple/cinnamon taste.

    My favourite apple is Nicola, very crisp and sweet. They're only around for a short time so I need to be on the ball :)
  • I don't even buy red delicious anymore because the flavor does not compare to some of the other apple varieties. My favorite apples are Pink Lady and Honey Crisp.
  • My favorite apple is a pink lady, just discovered these apples last year. I love them, although they are hard to fine sometimes.
  • I love honeycrisp apples! If you like them too you should try a new kind. The University of Minnesota has used cross pollinated honecrisp with something else (I'm not sure which one) but they call the new creation Sweetango and they are DELICIOUS! They're a big thing around here and if you see some you should definitely take advantage of trying it!
  • My favorite is Gala. Sweet and crisp! The problem with keeping them in the fridge is that no one eats them when they are there. If they aren't in plain site, they are forgotten...by me, too!
  • I eat an apple around 3 every afternoon. Now it is a habit. The sweetness of the Red Delicious helps to take away the craving for candy.

    My DH and I started to eat Honey Crisp apples. They are delicious!

    After enjoying apples for 40+ years, I developed Oral Allergy Syndrome, and apples are one of my worst offenders. How I wish I could eat a juicy sweet apple a day without my mouth turning tingly and numb! My favourites used to be MacIntoshes and Mutsu. I am still looking for another snack idea that would be as convenient, delicious and healthy as fresh apples.

    For my "basket apples" I prefer Granny Smith, Honeycrisp, or Cortlands. I love the tangy sweet tartness of them. For apple pies, I use a mix of sweet and tart to give the pie flavor a three dimensional taste and texture. For applesauce, I use Jonagold and McIntosh. If I'm making homemade cider, any apple will do and mixing them creates a unique blend. As for dried apples, I only use the tart (granny Smith) or really sweet (braeburn). Drying them reduces the flavor of the apples slightly, and these keep the true flavor of the apple. I'm a green cook: that means I try to cook as organically as possible, using only fruits and veggies in season, with as few steps from the farm to my plate as possible.

    We love our "Shenandoah Valley" tart and crisp Stayman apples.
