Experimenting is half the fun...

We compiled our "Best Uses" chart based upon our personal experience with our apples and customer reviews. You may have your own preferences and that's OK!  For instance, some folks swear that the best apple pie must have a mix of apple varieties. And others use only one. We suggest that you try whatever apples strike your fancy and see what you  like best. Frankly, we've never met an apple that we didn't love .
