    You could bake it - then it'll be very soft

    that is their nature. They are also very tart. Ifyou want a soft apple buy a different variety.

    Cook them down in a saucepan with a little water & lemon juice, adding sugar if you like [after peeling & chopping of course].

    Just cook a little longer. They will soften up.

    Cook them longer .. but they will always retain SOME texture. They never go mushy-soft.

    I prefer them for apple pies, for homemade chunk hot applesauce (served alongside a pork loin roast), and apple crisp.  I find them too tart for eating raw, tough.

    They never go mushy, and their tartness combines really well with sugar to produce a sweet-tart flavor that has actual life to it .. rather than the dull insipid mushy softer apples.

    Yes! Core it, fill the void with demarara (brown) sugar and microwave it. 3 1/2 to 4 minutes  on High should do it.
