Baking with apples

You can find apple pies throughout the world; from America to France and Britain, each country has its own special recipe for baking with apples. They differ in dough type and use of spices, but the basic idea behind the recipes is the same.

Quick tips

Storage: it’s best to store apples and pears in a cool place or in the fridge. They will keep fresh for weeks.

Overripe fruit: do you have some overripe apples or pears? Juice the apples, make a pear-smoothie or dice the apple and use in a crumble. In juices or smoothies, you can use the entire fruit. Your Thermomix® will be happy to blend it, core and all!

Save for later: peel, cut, core, and freeze your excess apples and pears to ensure you can continue making your fall favourites all year long! If you don't want to freeze the apples, cook up a quick compote to eat over the next few days.
Know your varieties: crisp varieties of apples and pears are best for baking since they keep their shape and also brown very nicely!

Using apple sauce: for a ligther dessert, replace some of the butter or oil in your recipe with some homemade apple sauce.
