What Are The Best Apples for The Mason Jar Apple Pies 

In our home, we love to mix Granny Smith with Gala apples to give our apple pie jars that added flavor. When these two apples are combined, you get that tart flavor from the Granny Smith and sweet taste from the Gala and both hold up well during the cooking process. Using both varieties is not necessary, you could use one variety of apple if you would like. The choice is yours.

If you didn’t know, some apples don’t hold up well during the cooking process. I will share a handful of varieties of apples that you can use when baking in order to get the best outcome. These apples will hold up the best and give you that tender apple texture without getting all mushy.

  • Jonagold
  • Pinklady
  • Braeburn

Give Apple Pie In A Jar As A Gift

Apple pie in a jar is great as single serve desserts to the family, but also great for giving as gifts to loved ones. When the holidays roll around, these jars are a perfect way to show your kindness to your neighbors, coworkers, and friends. Make up a handful of these pies and use some ribbon to tie on a plastic spoon and give them a gift that shows you appreciate their friendship. Attach a handmade note and let them enjoy their delicious pie!

Can You Bake In Mason Jars 

Proceed with caution when cooking with mason jars. A lot of times you will find the glass is not tempered for oven use. If the jars get too hot rapidly, they can shatter. I have used mason jars in my Air Fryer and have had no trouble so far. It is something to be aware of. You can buy tempered glass jars to use for this as well. 

Can You Microwave Mason Jars 

If you want to reheat an apple pie that was made in a mason jar, ensure that your jars have no metal. Most of the time the seal is metal. All you need to do is entirely remove that and heat. Some mason jars do have metal attached that can’t be removed, in which case those can’t be used in the microwave.
