A few weeks ago I wrote about Pink Lady apples. They were sweet and juicy, and a great snack around 2 pm when I want something really sweet. But my most favorite apples are Empire.
Yesterday I finally saw that the Empire apples were back at the grocery store: I was super excited and bought a big bag of them. Not only are they pretty, but they have very thin skin, juicy flesh, and perfectly sweet taste.
Would I cook with Empire apples? Sure! I think they'll be good in apple pancakes, apple/cabbage salad, or even in a pie.
