Last weekend was the NC Apple Festival. I never realized all the different varieties of apples. There were some sweet apples, some tart, and some in between. Some apples were for baking, some were for eating, and some could be eaten either way. Apples were used in whole pies, apple turnovers, fried pies, apple cider, apple cider donuts, apple ice cream, and apple cider slushies.

Here is a great resource for when apples ripen in NC and what kind of flavor they have:

It would be fun to give students a sample of different varieties and have them evaluate the flavor. Have them get in groups and put their recommendations in a chart for others to see. Then have each group present their charts in order to persuade the other groups to agree with their chart.
