Taster’s Cherce


The heirloom apple a day is: Reine des Reinettes.

This one has a lovely name, especially when a French-speaking person like my Ma says it.

My mom visited over the weekend and brought with her a fun treat from up north. A selection of apples. Five different varieties.


And so: An Apple a Day. First up, the Esopus Spitzenburg.

It’s a little tart but not too tart. Not mushy or crisp, somewhere in between.

I’m not expert but it’s a good apple.

The best apple? Food 52 has the skinny.

Apples are always in season. Especially when you need to cool down (and it sure am hot in here, ain’t it?)

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.
