This year we went nuts with gala apples that are crisp and juicy but not too sweet.

Frequently asked questions:

What apple is perfect for baking?

Gala apples are a great baking apple! These apples are both crisp and very sweet.

What do you use for peeling apples?

You should be using an apple peeler or corer. The suction mount ones work best.

When is apple season in Michigan?

Normally it runs from late August to early October

Fortunately, there are countless ways to savor the season that don't involve two sticks of butter. Enjoy these 50+ delicious apple recipes for morning, noon and night from my friends and your favorite food bloggers!
