Hoff Thoughts: I'm calling for organic Apples with this one, because the wax used on conventional Apples is too heavy/hard to remove and you're going to be eating the skins (lots of nutrients).  Nevertheless, be sure to soak your Apples in a salt or vinegar bath before using in order to clean.  The Golden Delicious will make up for the lack of Sugar.  You want medium to large Apples for this recipe.
