The McIntosh is excellent for cooking as well as fresh, and it breaks down easily, making it a popular choice for applesauce. Its flavor is superb in pies, ideally mixed with a firmer variety for the best in taste and texture. This easy-to-make apple cake is good either as a dessert or for breakfast.
