Personal Notes:
This recipe is great with any good apple. My favorite is Jonathan, with a tart taste.
I use these apples for apple pie, and *streuseled apples during the winter. If I have fresh apples I add them to the quart of apples to have a fuller pie or streuseled apples. (*see recipe in book)
