I bet a lot of people would name ‘The Apple’ as being the most boring, commonplace fruit there is. I used to be one of them. Couldn’t be further from the truth.
One of my favorite things to do is go apple shopping at my local grocery. I usually get 2 or 3 of about 5 different varieties at a time. Yesterday I picked up some Red Delicious, Smitten (a new fave!), Royal Gala, Jazz, and Fuji. And don’t even get me started on how excited I get when I discover a new variety that I didn’t even know existed. Yes, dancing and clapping of hands is sometimes involved.
Opening my lunch bag every day is an event, because I never know what juicy, sweet, crispy little gem is waiting for me.
Here are (I think) all of the varieties I have tried thus far: (* denotes a fave!)
