Nothing says "fall" like apples. Fresh, crisp, sweet, tart, and tasty, apples are one of those versatile fruits that you can do just about anything with. When most people think of apples, they think of snacks and desserts. But here, I'm using them for a quick and healthy (and very tasty) dinner option.

I'll be honest, I never realized the great variety of apples that are out there. I've always gone to the grocery store and headed straight for the green Granny Smiths. But in heading to Apple Land, I found myself consulting their great resources, including THIS informational chart. It's perfect for anyone who is looking for just the right apple for their particular needs, whether it be baking, or making sauces, or enjoying as a snack.
Well, I'm glad I consulted the chart, because I think I may have discovered a new favourite apple! I'm loving the MacIntosh. Not only are they great for cooking, but they really are a tasty snack, and my poor teeth don't go through a beating every time I bite into one. I think I'll experiment more with some of the other varieties the Apple Land has to offer, but for now, I'm sticking with my MacIntoshes.
