An Apple a Day

This is all mgucciard and marniegucciard's fault. They introduced us to an apple variety called Honeycrisp.

These are really annoyingly good apples. They are sweet. They are tart. They are juicy. The flesh tears away in chunks beneath your teeth and is not pulpy. They are everything that the overbred Red Delicious apple is not.

They also cost 2.5 times what the Red Delicious apples cost at Jewel. On the other hand, they're available at Jewel, which was a bit of a surprise, since we'd been told they were hard to find.

And on the gripping hand, I actually enjoy eating them.

So I figured I'd pass it along. Why should I be the only one buying annoyingly expensive apples?
