  • It's almost apple season!

    30 days and counting.

    September marks the start of apple season in many states in the USA
    and Canada. So, do you have a favorite apple?

    From Arkansas Black

    to Zestar


    Which one's your favorite?

      Not until after the first frost. After that, apples taste much better. Of course, considering Michigan's weather this summer, we might be seeing our first frost next week.

        Red or Golden Delicious. Though my favorite still is the yellow apples we ate green off a tree growing in the woods behind my grade school. Simply wonderful...........until you ate too many!

        Apple crop here is apparently looking good this year. It's still about 6-8 weeks until the apple festivals go into full swing.

          Washington Red Delicious.

          Crisp, sweet, juicy.

          On a side note, for a classic dessert you can't beat apple pie, maybe with a scoop of vanilla ice-cream or whipped cream.

          Ooooo, and I absolutely l-o-o-o-ve candied and carameled apples...with nuts.

              Granny Smith, an Australian apple, was rated by USDA in 1938 as being "unfit for further attention". The only green apple they thought worth anything at the time was R.I. Greening, which is a great keeper and pie apple if you can find it any more. The original Delicious (no such animal as a "red delicious" in spite of what the advertisers say) was a great tasting apple but is thought to be extinct now. As for my favorite...you can't beat Northern Spy.

                  It's the best, but hard to find now. The tree ages more gracefully than the fruit, which turns greasy when it ripens. If you can ever find some for sale, buy them all and make a great Spy pie.

                    I could aspire to that!
