In the PNW, we have access to many varieties of apples.

I hate summer ending, but I love apple season.

There should be more new crop apples coming in in about 2 more weeks. I love eating the new apples that enter our markets here every fall. I am always on the lookout for old fashioned varieties, and others I have not tried. I mix them up when I make applesauce.

We also have new crop Bartletts. I will buy some of those next week.

What apple and/or pear varieties are you looking forward to eating this fall?
McIntosh apples are my favorite and I can't wait to eat them again. Unfortunately, they have a very short season and are absent from our stores most of the year. I think, they are in our stores just 2-3 months of a year.
A comice pear is a delicacy to me, but they are very rare here. Sometimes I order them online, pretty expensive, though.

McIntosh apples are readily available during the fall and winter months in NY. I am not a fan. For baking and making apple sauce, I prefer Cortland. I will have to try snapdragon. Right now, the farmer's markets and farms have McIntosh and Fuji. Gala should be available soon.

Last summer at the local health food store, they had those newtown pippins. They were tart and tasty. I ate them raw.

Usually at apple orchards when we go to pick. Some grocery stores sell them, too, but (to me) they don't taste NEARLY as good - almost like they use some sort of "apple essence" or something, instead of actual cider.

We have an apple tree in our yard and have for the 20 years we have lived here. Still have no idea what kind of apples they are, but they are not very sweet, more tart. I've made apple pie, apple crisp, stir frys with apples in them, apple compote for pancakes, apple juice in blender, apple sauce, apple muffins, apple in soups like pumpkin, as is, in crockpot hot cereals, and the list goes on. We get anywhere from 5 to 14 bags of apples out of that tree, and still have some leftover in places we can't reach. What is leftover goes to the birds, deer, and other wildlife, and some gets mulched into the yard which keeps our yard very healthy. We give backs to homeless shelters and soup kitchens, churches, family, neighbors, friends and coworkers, and keep a few bags for ourselves. I love Fall time!

I tried a new one from the grocery store the other day, called Pazazz, because they were on sale. I actually sort of liked them... a bit tart, but quite juicy.

And cider! Though I'm now disappointed and disillusioned by the apple-cider racket, as several years ago a coworker came in on Monday: "We went to the cider mill over the weekend. The apples weren't in, but the cider was!" Waaaaait. My understanding was that they harvested the apples and then made cider with them, hence why you had to wait until cider season to buy it. You mean to tell me they bring the cider in from elsewhere or something for marketing purposes??

In my area, cider mills, usually, though often grocery stores will start carrying them, too (and a good thing, because the cider mills are always packed. I tried to go to one once... no parking whatsoever-- we're talking, the sides of the road were packed, the lawn was packed, I can only imagine the crowds inside. I gave up and went home and haven't tried since; I'm sure it's even worse now).

I want to make an apple walnut quick bread when it starts to cool down. I'll have to check around for the best recipe.

This is fun.

Tuned to Braeburn, but lists all varieties.

How could I forget Ruby Frost? Not available until winter, though.
