                                 APPLES
                          _in appealing ways_


Choose your favorite apple—a fragrant Winesap, a juicy Stayman, a tart
Northern Spy ... each variety has its own appeal. And the versatile
apple can lend flavor to your main course, salad, bread, or dessert.

An apple, eaten raw, makes a pleasant, low-calorie snack or dessert. A
medium-size apple contains only 70 calories.

Like other fruits, apples contain some vitamins and minerals. Bottled or
canned apple juice may be fortified with vitamin C.

In this publication, you’ll find useful facts about apples, recipes for
many of your favorite apple dishes, and some new or unusual ways of
preparing and serving apples.



                            CHOOSING APPLES


The large assortment of apples at retail markets provides a variety for
every need. It’s a good idea to learn to recognize some of the most
popular varieties. (See table, p. 4.)


                               Varieties

There are many good all-purpose apples, plus others especially suited
for preparing in certain ways.

Apples that “go to pieces” when cooked are usually best for applesauce;
those that keep their shape are best for baking whole. Tart apples are
good for cooking; sweeter apples, for eating raw. Early summer apples
are especially good in applesauce and pies because they’re likely to be
juicy, tart, and quick-cooking.


                           Quality of Apples

Be sure to buy good-quality apples. Those that are mature when picked
have the best flavor and texture. They should be firm and crisp, have a
good color, and be free from defects.

Most apples are marketed by grade, and many retail packages show
variety, grade, and size. U.S. grades for apples are U.S. Extra Fancy,
U.S. Fancy, U.S. No. 1, and combinations of these grades. U.S. No. 2 is
a less desirable grade. Apples from the far western States are usually
marketed under State grades which are similar to Federal grades.

Fresh apples and other fruits can develop bruises, blemishes, or other
defects because of poor growth or rough handling. They are sometimes
available at bargain prices.

    Red Delicious—fragrant, sweet, and an excellent choice for eating
    out of hand—combines well with other raw foods, as in cabbage-apple
    salad (p. 9).]

    general cooking, gives this cobbler a flavor boost. For the recipe,

    Tart, firm Rome Beauty is a classic choice for dishes such as baked
    apples that call for apples that retain their shape when cooked. The
    recipe is on page 11.]



                             STORING APPLES


Only perfect apples should be stored for later use. Use apples with
bruises, skin breaks, or decayed spots as soon as possible.


                             Brief Storage

Store slightly underripe apples for 2 weeks or less in a cool place, 60°
to 70° F., to ripen.

Apples that are ripe enough for eating will keep in your home
refrigerator for a week or longer. Place them in the humidifier
compartment or in a moisture-resistant container, such as a polyethylene
bag. Fruit needs some ventilation, however. The polyethylene bags in
which apples are sometimes purchased have small holes. If you prepare
your own bags for storing apples, cut a few scattered half-inch holes.


                             Longer Storage

Most varieties of apples will keep several months if stored at lower
temperatures. Freezing will lower the quality of apples.

For directions on long-term storage of apples, see Home and Garden
Bulletin 119, “Storing Vegetables and Fruits in Basements, Cellars,
Outbuildings, and Pits.” Send your request on a post card to the Office
of Information, U.S. Department of Agriculture, Washington, D.C. 20250.

                                RECIPES


Here are some of the many ways to use apples—in the main course of the
meal, in salads, in breads, in desserts, and in other ways. Let the
table on page 4 guide you in selecting the best apple variety for each
recipe. The flavor, texture, and juiciness of the finished product may
vary slightly with the kind of apple used.

Commercially canned applesauce was used in developing the recipes that
call for applesauce. If you use homemade applesauce in these recipes, it
should be similar in sweetness and juiciness to commercially canned
applesauce.

Raw apples may darken when the cut surface is exposed to air, especially
if the fruit has touched the iron in a knife blade or chopper. Protect
cut apples from darkening by mixing with fruit juice—lemon, orange,
grapefruit, or pineapple—before adding other ingredients.



                       Apples in the Main Course


                     Mincemeat-apple filled peaches

_8 servings_

  1 cup finely chopped apples
  ½ cup mincemeat
  ½ cup miniature marshmallows
  8 canned peach halves, drained
  Peach sirup, as needed

Mix apples, mincemeat, and marshmallows.

Place peaches in baking dish. Fill centers with apple mixture.

Pour a few tablespoons of the peach sirup into bottom of dish.

Bake at 375° F. (moderate oven) for about 20 minutes, until peaches are
thoroughly heated. To serve, arrange peaches on platter around meat.


                             Apple stuffing

_4 cups stuffing_

  ¼ cup butter, margarine, or bacon drippings
  ½ cup chopped onion
  ½ cup chopped celery
  4 cups diced, tart apples
  ½ teaspoon salt
  ⅓ cup sugar
  4 cups small bread cubes

Melt fat in a large frypan. Add onion, celery, and apples. Sprinkle with
salt and sugar.

Cook, turning occasionally, for 8 to 10 minutes or until apples are
lightly browned.

Add bread cubes and toss gently to blend ingredients.


                               HOW TO USE

_Pork shoulder with apple stuffing._—Sprinkle the inside of a 4-pound,
boned fresh pork shoulder with 1 teaspoon salt and pepper, as desired.
Spread with stuffing. Fold meat over stuffing and skewer. Place on a
rack, skin side up, in a shallow baking pan. Bake at 325° F. (slow oven)
for about 2½ hours or until meat is tender and the juice is no longer
pink.


                      Sweetpotato-apple casserole

_6 servings, about ⅔ cup each_

  1 can (18 ounces) sweetpotatoes, drained
  ¼ cup sweetpotato liquid or orange juice
  1 can (20 ounces) apple pie filling
  1 teaspoon grated orange rind, if desired
  1 teaspoon lemon juice
  1 cup bread cubes
  2 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted

Arrange sweetpotatoes in a 2-quart casserole.

Blend remaining ingredients except bread cubes and fat. Pour over
sweetpotatoes.

Mix bread cubes with fat and sprinkle over apples.

Bake at 375° F. (moderate oven) until liquid is bubbly and bread cubes
are lightly browned.


NOTE: You may omit canned sweetpotatoes, apple pie filling, and ¼ cup
liquid. Instead, use 2 cups cooked sweetpotatoes and 2½ cups tapioca
apples (p. 14).


                          Panned apple wedges

_6 servings, about ½ cup each_

  3 tablespoons butter or margarine
  1 tablespoon lemon juice
  5 cups pared apple wedges
  ⅓ cup sugar

Melt fat in a large frypan over moderately low heat. Mix lemon juice
with apples and pour into pan. Sprinkle with sugar.

Brown apples lightly on both sides, turning once.

If apples are not tender, cover and cook over low heat a little longer.


                          SERVING SUGGESTIONS

Panned apples are especially good served with pork, ham, fried chicken,
or sweetpotatoes.

Or, fill halves of baked, seasoned acorn squash with panned apples.

Chill until firm.


                               VARIATION

mayonnaise or salad dressing.


                               VARIATIONS

_Pork-, ham-, or veal-apple salad._—Use one of these cooked meats
instead of poultry.

_Tunafish-apple salad._—Use 13- or 14-ounce can of tunafish instead of

                        Apple-fruit combinations

For a tasty and colorful salad, fruit cup, or dessert, combine apples
and other fruits, cut or sectioned. For a salad, use large pieces, drain
the fruit, and place on greens. For a fruit cup or dessert, use smaller
pieces and add a little fruit juice.
