In UK, apples are classified into three main types: cooking apples (also called culinary apples), dessert apples (or table apples), and cider apples.

Cooking apples

Cooking apples are very sour, low in sugar and tannins; they are used for making sauces (e.g. chutney), baking cakes (e.g. apple crumble), making jams, jellies. They are not eaten raw.

Examples: Bramley, Charles Ross, Arthur Turner, Howgate Wonder.

Dessert apples – they are very sweet and aromatic, you can eat them raw.

Examples: Golden Delicious, Gala, Granny Smith, Cox, Katy.

Cider apples

Cider apples – special varieties bred only for the production of cider. They are high in sugar, tannins and acid (in various proportions), which makes them perfect for cider. Cider apples are not eaten or made into any food.

History of apples

Different types of apples have different uses – we don’t eat all of them raw

Domesticated apple trees with valuable and tasty fruit spread from Central Asia through Asia Minor to the rest of Europe. Since then, the apple in Europe has been a symbol of health, life, fertility, fertility, love, autumn harvest in Europe, but also spring (together with the apple blossom), abundance, longevity and immortality.

Thanks to the biblical myth about Adam and Eve who dared to taste the “forbidden fruit”, the apple is also considered an aphrodisiac today.

Historically, the East side of England has specialized in dessert and culinary apples as this is where the main markets and customers are concentrated around London.

Meanwhile, in the west of the country, bittersharp and bittersweet are popular, especially valued in Devon and Somerset, in the three counties of Herefordshire, Worcestershire and Gloucestershire, and in Wales.

Apple Pie

Apple pie is a confectionery product originating in France, an invention attributed to Marie-Antoine Careme, consisting of shortcrust (including semi-shortbread) dough and fruit.

According to legend, Careme was supposed to create a cake called charlotte russe especially for Tsar Alexander I, his long-time employer. The apple pie owes its name to Princess Charlotte, the emperor’s sister-in-law, later tsarina.

Soon, on our blog, we will present the recipe and photo report of making apple pie.

This is not only the best way to enjoy a nice apple pie, it has a few advantages over the standard way to enjoy a apple.

First, you can make this recipe with fresh and ripe apples as well as the dried ones.

This recipe also requires some preparation time. I used to make a pie with the whole thing in its own baking dish and freeze it in the freezer for hours before serving.

Second, you can make this recipe with other fruits than apples, like cherries or pears. If you have a large freezer, this recipe is perfect for serving with an ice cream cone or ice cream in the morning.
