My favorite apple for pies are Northern Spies………they are great and I have never seen them outside of New York State.
My favorite apple for sauce are Cortlands………they make the whitest most wonderful sauce you could ask for.
Favorite "eating" apples are Fugi, Macintosh, and Gala’s.
I can remember about 20 years ago when an elderly lady took me apple picking and we picked a bushel of 20 oz. pippins……they were huge and delicious both for eating and cooking. Has anyone seen any of these?
