Red Delicious apples contain vitamin C and are high in dietary fibre. They provide a small amount of vitamin A and sodium, and calcium and iron traces. Red Delicious apples in antioxidants are higher than many other varieties of apples, most of which are in the skin. Feels crisp and juicy and offers a mildly sweet taste with flavors of melon.
Red Delicious apples are best used in fresh preparations because when cooked, their flesh doesn't hold up well. Add green salads, fruit and chopped salads. Use the sandwiches, quesadillas and burgers as edible garnish. Because their flesh breaks down easily, they can be cooked and purified successfully to make soups and sauces. With cinnamon, cheddar cheese, horseradish, chard, cherries, mustard and pecans, their flavour paires well. Red Delicious apples may be stored up to one month in the refrigerator.
