Best apples for baking

As I already mentioned in previous posts, best apples for baking are those which hold their shape well and have sweet flavor. If you choose in store (but not in your garden), number one of course are Granny Smith, which are widely available and have sweet and tart taste. What’s more, If you prefer red apples, I would recommend Jonagold, Crispin, Cortland or Braeburn. But there are so much more apples to choose from! Apples with thick skin hold their shape very well (usually winter varieties).

You can actually check and regulate time of baking apples, but usually it is about 20-30 minutes. I like the baked apple to be soft, but not overly soft and mushy when you cut it. You can check if it’s soft with skewer or fork.

Halloween recipes for kids

There are so many Halloween recipes, but these baked apples are great to make with kids. Remove the core and let kids make stuffed apples. Black prunes are looking like “poison” or something spooky inside. But in reality it is sweet and soft filling that tastes great with baked apple! Moreover, these red baked stuffed apples are great Halloween table  decorations. Oh, and don’t forget to carve some apples, as we did. These apple faces are so cute, aren’t they? Have fun and spooky Halloween!

  1. I don’t like the cold weather, but I do love all the flavours that come along with it. Apple seasoning is just ramping up. These are perfect way to celebrate with.
