I’ve heard of parents sneaking in fruits & veges to get their kids to eat them but around here, there’s no need to be sneaky. When I received a big box of PiÃ±ata apples, Truett’s eyes lit up. He asked what I was gonna do with them and I said, “I don’t know, I think I’m gonna make them into a pie or muffins or something sweet”. You know what he did? He rolled his eyes and said, “Can’t I just eat the apple for my snack?”. Awwww, he only wanted the apple. So that’s what I did folks, I let him eat the apples for snacks and then I quickly noticed that my older boys were grabbing one before they headed off to school! As much as I wanted to turn these apples into something special, I was slapped with, they were special as is. I’m glad I have my boys around to remind that of the little things.
BUT, if you are new to cooking with apples, you should know that some apples are better for certain things than others. These that I received are PiÃ±ata apples. They are very flavorful, tropical I’d say. They are very crisp and juicy, firm & crunchy, and they resist browning after being cut. These are excellent for snacks and salads and based on what I’ve seen about them, great for baking as well.
