There are all kinds of great activities to do in the fall. The air is crisp and the colors are bright, and there’s nothing better than throwing on a sweater and taking in the beauty of nature.

And if you can get something yummy out of it, all the better!

If you live in the U.S., or anywhere in the Northern Hemisphere, fall is the time for food. It’s harvest time, which is celebrated with holidays like Halloween and Thanksgiving. It’s also the season when apples of all kinds ripen on their trees.

Apples are fantastic not only because they’re packed with nutrients (that saying about keeping the doctor away doesn’t come from nowhere), but they’re also wonderfully versatile when it comes to eating.

You can bite into one raw or make a classic pie, or you can throw some slices into a salad. You can even turn them into unexpected cupcake treats.

But with so many recipes and so many varieties of apple, how do you know which apples to go for?

The video below will tell you which apples to pick for different recipes, and will give you some interesting apple facts you might not have known! Check it out, and let us know your favorite apple recipe in the comments.
