The Golden Delicious has the flavor that many feel an apple is supposed to have. It’s a large yellow apple, with and occasional pink blush, that has a mild, sweet and well-balanced flavor. The Golden Delicious is the preferred ‘all-purpose’ cooking apple because its firm, white flesh retains its shape, and mellow flavor when baked or cooked. Its skin is so tender and thin that many recipes don’t even require it being peeled. The Golden Delicious is a fantastic apple to use in pies. It’s great for salads, baking, sauces, and freezing.
