Baked Apples FAQs!
Even though the recipe for these Baked Apples might be fairly straight forward, there are still a few questions that might come up along the way. Here are some of the common questions and answers that can hopefully help you out as well!
What apples are best for using to make Baked Apples?
We recommend using Jonagold. They are tart with a honeyed sweetness and hold up great when baking. It’s our go-to apple for baking.
Another great option is Honeycrisp!
What tools do I need to make Baked Apples?
You don’t need many tools at all! Besides your oven and grill, you’ll need to have a knife, mixing bowl and aluminum foil.
You can also use an apple corer to help as well.
How long do baked apples grill or bake?
Whether they’re on the grill or in the oven, they’re going to need to cook for about 20-25 minutes. This is so they’re a bit soft and easier to eat.
Can you peel the apples before placing them in the grill or the oven?
While you technically can, I wouldn’t recommend it. The outer apple skin is what is going to hold it all together when it’s cooking. Plus, the apple skin has a lot of great nutritional value as well.
