Apples, which ones to choose?
There are many types of apples, each with its own taste and organoleptic qualities. In addition to this, another factor to consider is the consistency, since cooking, the apple tends to soften. For apple pie the most suitable qualities are fuji apples and golden: both have a sweet taste, are firm and not floury and retain their consistency even after cooking, without crushing. In fact, in the slice of cake it is good that the apple maintains its own firmness, which must be felt in the mouth.
