    We have some red delicious apples, can you make a pie out of them? My wife did not know, I thought you could make a APPLE pie out of any apple. Anyone have a good Pie recipe they would like to share?

    Jeb is right, there are not much for cooking. :confused2: Here are some comment I found on line I hope it will help.

    "Granny Smiths are always a decent choice for pie, as they are easy to find, will hold up during baking and can take a lot of extra flavor from sugar and spices. Jonathan, Jonagold and Pippin apples are other excellent sweet-tart choices. Gravenstein, Braeburn, Fuji and Pink Lady Apples are all crisp and sturdy, as well. Red Delicious and Golden Delicious, despite their promising names, are not good choices for baking, and neither are Gala and Cortland, since they tend to become mealy in pie fillings." from bakingbites.com.

    Thanks for the response. I didn't know that the type of apple made a difference:confused2: I guess that is why I don't have a cooking show:smile2:

    i dont know about you guys, but i had a apple called the honey crisp apples they only are arpund in the fall and they are about 5 bucks a pound but they are so good they are totally worth around 2.50 a piece since they are huge they are like 4-5 incehes in diameter sometimes, so if you get the chance try ne they are great!!!

    i love a fresh apple pie. i tried the red apples and couldnt eat the pie tasted like chewing cardboard. then i tried some small green apples my wife brought home from school and it was excellent. first i used store bought pie shells then i tried msking my own and they were better than the others. not as convenient.
    i cut up about three cups of apples in slices. put in a skillet add two cups of suger and three tablespoons of butter and 1/4 cup of water and let it cook down till all the apples are soft(stirring constantly) cut the heat down add brown sugar and ground cinamon to the top (experiment to taste) and simmer for a couple of minutes. pour in shell and put top shell on it punch a few holes in it to keep it from bubbling up. cook till shells are done and wala the best apple pie you could ask for.

    Would Red Delicious or Golden Delicious not be a fair choice for making things such as apple sauce or apple butter or even jelly since they are going to be cooked as mush or just for the juice anyway?

    I use unsweetened applesauce in alot of my recipes for a sweetner in place of sugar for my husband because he has been told by doc that he has to cut out sugars, salts, and fats.

    I have to totally agree about the honey crisp apples. For me, they are the best tastin' apples ever. Around here, they run about 2.99 a pound.
