Honey Crisp Apples

September 25, 2013  •  Leave a Comment

So I grew up on an apple orchard in Eastern Ontario, Canada until I was 9 years old when we moved to Texas.  We mostly picked up grounders (freshly fallen apples) and shined them on our shirts and ate them.  We even had 1 single pear tree that every once in a while we would venture into the orchard to find...usually without much luck.  We had Macintosh, spies, red delicious, I think we had granny smith's too as it would be inconceivable to have an apple orchard without having really good apples for making pies!

That being said, I love apples.  Always have.  These days, I really like the Gala and the Fuji flavors, and for a little while this summer, they were all that were available...so I settled.  

But yesterday I was rewarded with my new ultimate favorite.  Honey Crisp.  OMG - They are the perfect combination of sweet, tart and especially crisp!  But oh are they expensive!  Holy mackerel!  I had a checkout girl confirm with me one time that I was buying $10 worth of apples...and there were only 4!  

So now I try to buy smaller ones and get 5 or 6 but it's still usually close to $10...but I figure that's cheaper than the doctor bill!  Be bold this fall and try something new...and if you're into apples, try the Honey Crisp!  They're delicious!!
