Anyone have any suggestions on the type of apple to use to make gourmet apples besides using Granny Smith apples? I know it should be tart but Grannies seem to be too tart for my taste. Looking for any suggestions. Thanks.
Jacquie, tartness will balance the sweetness of the chocolate and other toppings you may be using but also a GS apple has the crispness and keeping qualities needed to hold the apple after coating. Look for other crisp apples like Fuji, Honeycrisp (sweeter but very crisp), or even a Braeburn. These have good crunch without the overly mouth-puckering tartness of Granny Smith. Good luck!
