still an odd name for a child

So-called Delicious apples have never tasted that good to me. I found most of them to have a mealy texture. McIntosh is usually my apple of choice although I have come to appreciate a good Granny Smith over the past year or so. It's a lot easier to find Granny Smith apples in the stores than McIntosh. My wife recently bought some apples that have become my new favorite for now. My first taste of a Cortland apple brought back memories of growing up in New York. My father took us apple picking someplace upstate one fall. Of course we considered anyplace north of Westchester County to be "upstate." It must have been around this time of year because I remember listening to a World Series game in the car on the way.

Since you're sharing with us so often, I thought I would share an Apple Revelation with you.

The Pink Lady apple is, by far, one of the best I've ever tried. The tartness and crispness of a Granny Smith mixed with the sweetness of a McIntosh. I found this variety at a local farmer's market and loved it!
