You went apple picking with the people you love, good for you! You win at fall. Now, what to do with all those apples? Before you go making twelve pies you’ll then have to eat or find good homes for (neither of which is particularly difficult), consider what varieties you have and what each is best-suited for. Some apples are delicious in salads, and some are better baked whole. Make your own apple chips, sprinkled with cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice, or make the best applesauce you never poured out of a container. This handy infographic is perfectly in season, as are thick-cut, bone-in pork chops for that applesauce.
