Baking Apples variety for side dish
I am making whiskey glazed sweet potatoes for Thanksgiving. The recipe calls for crisp apples (the apples and sweet potatoes will be baked along with a whiskey glaze that includes whiskey (I am using bourbon), pecans, agave syrup, butter, salt, cinnamon, and cayenne pepper. The problem is, the recipe doesn't specify what type of apples to use. What variety of apple would you recommend that bakes well with sweet potatoes? Thanks so much. http://www.foodnetwork...

Honeycrisps let off a lot of juice, so it's something to keep in mind based on what you're going for (I wouldn't do pie with those unless you cooked down some of the juice let off after you sugared the apples and added it back, because it could be too much liquid otherwise). If you need more liquid, those will be good, but will add a lot of sweetness (so taste before adding too much sugar).
