Rose Rauhauser Recipe

By Rose Rauhauser NewYorkWoman


I live near an apple orchard and this is the list the owner gave me of apples you can use for apple pies.


apples for pies

Directions Step-By-Step

In September and October the apples for pies are: Cortland, Johathan, Empire, Jonagold Melrose, Golden Delicious, Crispin, Stayman Winesap, Nittany, York Imperial, Rome and Fuji and Granny Smith.
The tart ones are: Cordland, Jonathan, Empire, Janagold, Melrose, Stayman Winesap York Imperial and Granny Smith. The Sweet ones are: Rome, Crispin, Fuji, Nittany. There are more but they come out at different times of the year. My apple pies I use mostly Rome with two Granny Smith for sweet and tart combination.. The apple sauce list is the same. Hope this is helpful.

Brown's orchards in my neighborhood has a list posted in the apple area of their store. It lists the harvest time, tart/sweet and uses for each. I love that place. Everything: fresh fruits & veggies, lunch meats, baked goods, soups & crafts. Even a wine shop. If you live near by, it's worth visiting.

Thanks Rose for this valuable information. My mom who was a MRS SMITH, always used Granny Smith for her pie baking. LOL. I printed this up so I could view it when I need it. Thanks again. 5/21/18

Thank you Deb, with my medication I can't have soy and it's in all store prepared products. I also have arthritis and fibromyalgia in 94% of body (includes the brain muscle). So I prefer a crumbled topping, the easier the better. You've made this a whole lot easier Hun!
