The Best Apples for Apple Pie

The Best Apples for Apple Pie Some apples are good for snacking, and others are better suited for baking.

Instead of giving my guests just one sauce to choose from, this year I’m going to give them five. Each one has different flavor profiles that will stand up to all the other deliciousness on my plate.

First up is a dried fruit chutney. It has a similar flavor profile to a homemade cranberry sauce without the tart, bitter cranberries. I stew dried cherries, raisins and apricots with ginger, brown sugar and spices. I add a little bit of orange juice and zest to cut the sweetness while adding a fresh flavor.

Next is a pomegranate fig mostarda. Traditionally, mostarda is an Italian fruit and mustard condiment that takes days, sometimes even weeks to make. Nobody has time for that, so I’ve sped up the process by cooking dried figs and fresh pomegranate arils in red wine, mustard seeds and apple cider vinegar. It’s sweet, it’s tangy and has a little bit of a spicy kick.

Third on my list is a classic homemade applesauce. We all know applesauce pairs well with pork, so why not serve it with turkey? My secret ingredient is butter ― it adds richness to the tart apples and makes for a silkier texture.

Fourth is bacon jam. My philosophy in cooking is when in doubt, add bacon. That rule applies to your Thanksgiving plate, too. Bacon jam is made by slowly cooking bacon, onions, brown sugar, maple syrup and vinegar until it’s thick and the consistency of jam. It’s sweet, it’s salty, its tangy and it’s the perfect accoutrement to your turkey. 

This One Rule Separates Good Baking Apples From The Losers

  This One Rule Separates Good Baking Apples From The Losers No offense to soft apples, but we're looking for something firm and crisp.This easy tip from Claire Saffitz, the brain behind Apple Pandowdy, Apple-Walnut Upside Down Cake, and Caramel Apple Clafoutis, is all you need to remember: A baking apple should be so firm that when you press on it with your thumb, you don't leave an indent.

The last sauce I’ll be serving this year is chimichurri. It’s untraditional, but it’s one of my favorite condiments. I blend parsley, cilantro, dill and basil with capers, red wine vinegar, olive oil, shallots and garlic until it resembles pesto. The acidity from the vinegar and saltiness from the capers make this my favorite of them all. I’ll be slathering it on my turkey and my mashed potatoes.

Make one or make them all this Thanksgiving.
