In an effort to increase my fiber intake (and because they're just plain yummy) I've started eating an apple a day. As a kid I didn't really like apples because they... ok, so it's really because they aren't oranges. I know, I was a fruitist. Because I'm more grown up now (or so I tell people) I eat things that I didn't as a child (many of which I would have found uber gross. Tofu, anyone?)
What was I talking about? Oh, apples. Due to my fruitism, I've really only eaten Red Delicious apples most of my life and I feel it's time to expand my repertoire. As I try new apple varieties, I'm going to write up a little review. Mostly, it's to remember which ones to get at the grocery store, but if it help you out a little, yay!
Each review will include a description of sweetness, tartness, graininess (because a grainy apple can be just awful), flesh and skin descriptions, and general notes on color and such. Plus hopefully I'll remember to take a picture (before I eat it). Also, I'll probably be including a note on how the flavor combines with lemon because it's a great way to keep your sliced apples from going brown, plus it adds a little vitamin C.
Munch, munch (it's too late for a picture of this one),
