Abstract

The predominant canned apple products in the United States are applesauce and apple slices; much smaller volumes of baked and glazed apples also are produced. As discussed in chapter 1, about 45% of the total U.S. apple crop went into processing in the mid-1980s (see tables 1–8 and 1–9). About 15% of the total crop was processed into canned products. During the 10-year period 1971–1980, approximately 87% of the total canned apples were processed into applesauce. Clearly, the most popular canned apple product is applesauce, with canned apple slices being a distant second (Anon. 1983).
