What Makes These Cinnamon Apples Healthier?
What Apples Are Best for Cooking?
I like using Honey Crisp or Gala. According to allrecipes.com, other apples that hold up well when cooked are Braeburn, Fuji, Gala, Jonagold, and Golden Delicious (just to name a few). I’m going to go out on a limb and say that all apples would taste delicious served this way!
