What are the best apples to use for baking?
Often times baking with apples requires firm, crisp apples like Fuji, Pink Lady, Honey Crisp or Granny Smith. However, there are few recipes that call for softer apples such as Red Delicious or Golden Delicious. Double check with the recipe you’re making as not only the firmness, but also the tartness of the apple can influence how it works in the recipe.
Can apples be frozen?
Yes! If you have plenty of apples, but no immediate plans for using them, freezing your apples is a great way to go. First wash, then peel and shop your apples prior to freezing. You can cut them into small pieces like you’d use in muffins, or larger slices like you’d use in apple crisp. Frozen apples can be used in pretty much any cooked recipes: pies, muffins, cobblers, breads, even applesauce can be made from frozen apples!
Apple Cinnamon Scones made with fresh apples and topped with cinnamon and sugar. Delicious homemade scone recipe that is great for breakfast or a sweet treat! Get the recipe for Apple Cinnamon Scones here.
Apple Cinnamon Scones
- 1 Fuji or Honeycrisp apple peeled and chopped in small pieces
- ¾ cup heavy cream
- 1 egg
- ½ tsp vanilla
- 1 ¾ cups flour
- 3 Tbsp sugar
- 2 ½ tsp baking powder
- ½ tsp cinnamon
- ½ tsp salt
- 6 Tbsp cold butter
Cinnamon Sugar Topping
- 1 Tbsp sugar
- ¾ tsp cinnamon
- Preheat oven to 350°.
- In a small bowl, whisk together the heavy cream with the egg and vanilla. Stir in the apple pieces.
- In another bowl, whisk flour with 3 Tbsp of the sugar, baking powder, cinnamon and salt.
- Cut butter into 4-5 smaller pieces. Add to the bowl with the flour mixture and use a pastry cutter (or the back of a fork) to mix it in with the other ingredients. Once the butter is fairly well mixed in (will still be in small chunks), add the apples and cream and stir everything together just until combined. Don't overmix!
- Sprinkle the counter with flour and roll the dough out into a 8 inch circle. Use a pizza cutter to cut into 12 wedges. Place them on a well greased or parchment lined cookie sheet. Mix together the cinnamon sugar topping and sprinkle on top of the scones.
- Bake scones until golden brown, about 23-25 minutes. Let cool on baking sheets for a few minutes and then transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely. Or just eat them warm like I do!

When are apples in season?
Most apples in the United States are in season during the Fall. Buying apples when they’re in season is a great idea because they taste better and are less expensive. Plan on buying apples in season from September thru November.
How long will apples stay fresh
Apples will stay fresh for 4-5 weeks if you store them in a cool, humid place, like the refrigerator. Of course, when you purchase apples from the grocery store, it’s unknown how long ago they were picked, so I usually just plan on them lasting 2-3 weeks refrigerated. Apples like cold temperatures, 30-35 degrees F is ideal, although somewhat unreasonable for traditional households.
Are apples good for you?
Apples are very good for you! They contain high amounts of fiber and antioxidants, which lower cholesterol levels. Apples also contain a lot of water so they’re a fantastic snack that keeps you full for longer. Apples are high in vitamin C and B vitamins as well. Most of the fiber is contained in the apple peel, so try to avoid cutting that off and instead, eat the whole apple.
Do apple seeds contain cyanide?
Yes, apple seeds contain cyanide, so eating too many can be detrimental. Note that it would take a lot of consumed apple seeds to cause any problems for you though!
