Taster’s Cherce

One of Emily’s cousins is a self-proclaimed apple snob. Says nothing beats a honeycrisp as an everyday eating apple. I didn’t know from the variety until he mentioned it but have since tried out them out and have to say–damn tasty.

Totally disagree. I mean, they're fine, but Golden Delicious and Liberty are my choices now. Maybe my favorite way of spending an October afternoon is to go to the nearby orchard, pick and chomp and put a couple of pecks in bags. Man.

This help clear the nasty McRib taste by the way, Alex. :-)

1) Yeah, I couldn't let that stand. LOL. Golden D, yum, and good for cooking, too.

Pardon the off-topicness but I am so fucking stuck in O'Hare right now... three cancellations already and only one shot left between me and an airport hotel with no change of clothes... and I could feel the Banter reduce my blood pressure about fifty points just now. Thanks for being there, folks.

never had one. an apple, that is. any kind.

that said, i have apple sauce in my fridge. but i'm guessing that doesn't really count...

[4] Actually... you're still kinda close. Once you get past the skin, it's basically firm applesauce. I gave up apple juice, but drink cold apple cider hardcore. I so like apple pie now whereas when I was a kid I hated it. I eat apples now as a part of my fruit requirement; I'm far from being snobbish about which ones are best except to note bruises and stay away from the mushy or potentially wormy ones. But apple cider, yeahhhhhhh...

[5] no apple pie or apple cider for me. i drank some apple juice as a kid. didn't love it or hate it, but it didn't stick with me. i like apple sauce.

i have a big thing of clementines in the fridge. that will take care of my fruit requirement for the next month, or so...

i just put on the excellent Tom Scott "Apple Juice" record. a rare & expensive CD from 30 years ago. live at the bottom line, 1981 with some of the best jazz/funk studio musicians of the day.

eric gale, richard tee, marcus miller, steve gadd, et al.

good stuff!
