Prepping Apples for Pie

  1. Start with the right apple. Certain varieties, such as Braeburn, Golden Delicious, Jonagold (sweet), Cortland, Granny Smith, and Jonathan (tart) hold up best during cooking.
  2. Rinse the apples with water and scrub with a produce brush.
  3. To peel, use a vegetable peeler or paring knife; start at the stem end and circle around to the blossom end. Cut the apple into four pieces through the stem and blossom ends.
  4. Cut away the core and seeds, stem, and blossom ends, then slice each quarter as desired.
