I recommend choosing the same types of apples that you’d use in baking recipes, such as Granny Smith, Gala, or Honeycrisp.These varieties hold their shape well when they’re cooked, unlike, say, McIntosh apples, which break down quickly.
If you like tart apples, go for Granny Smith.Gala or Honeycrisp are good sweeter options.Apple cider vinegar – It adds a pop of tangy flavor to balance the apples’ sweetness.
Water – It helps the apples steam and soften.Cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg – They add warm, spiced fall flavor.And a pinch of sea salt – To make all the flavors pop!Find the complete recipe with measurements below.
