Boy on HayrideApples are the nutritious go-to snack, whether for lunches or when you’re on-the-go….but let’s be honest, apples taste even better when turned into a warm homemade apple pie, apple crisp, or apple cider – yum!

Pro tip: Granny Smith is one of the most popular baking apples. It’s a tart and tangy apple with a firm flesh. If you like a splash of sweetness, pair it with some slices of Honeycrisp in your recipe.
