Hi, I'm Brian from Trellis of the Heathman Hotel in Kirkland. And today we are recommending apples for baking. Did you ever have that beautiful piece of pie and when you cut into it it's a little bit runny or the apples all sink to the bottom? That's because all apples have a different texture. They have a different flavor and a different consistency. So today I'm going to talk about granny smith's, braeburns, and Johny golds. When we bake here at the hotel we bake with a variety of apples. And we always try to use three different types. One is for texture, one is for flavor, and one is sort of the binder that brings it all together. So when we bake our apple pie and we blend these three apples together we end up with a beautiful consistent finished product. We slice our apples, we peel them. We toss them with a little bit of lemon juice. A little tapioca and a little bit of sugar. And then we lay them in our pie shell. And I think if you have apples that are different from these the best way to find out which are the best for baking is to cut one and put it in a 350 degree oven. And cook it. And if it's a juicy apple it's going to fall apart. If it's a firm apple it's going to stay together. And you will be able to taste your flavors, your sweetness, your sugar, and your consistency. So today we have Johnny golds, braeburn, and granny smith. And those are our favorites for baking.
