Fall is apple time. Prime time for fresh apple pie, apple cobbler, apple dumplings, apple sauce, or maybe just the simpleness of a crisp apple cut up and eaten alone. So last week when I was dashing through the grocery store and saw my favorite apple, the honeycrisp, on the end cap, I quickly snagged a bunch. They go quickly around here.
Honeycrisps are a popular snack apple. Crisp and sweet, they certainly live up to their name. I just read that in 2006 the Andersen Elementary school in Bayport, Minnesota petitioned the state legislature there to claim the honeycrisp as their state fruit.
So be sure to keep your eyes peeled for these beauties next time you’re at the grocery store, and let me know what you think. I’d be surprised if they wouldn’t become one of your favorites too.
Tell me, what’s your favorite apple variety? Or favorite apple recipe?
Have an apple of a day!
