'A' Is for Autumn and Apples
While I was out running errands Friday, I picked up five for $12. At $2.98/pound on sale, these are some pricey - and enormous - apples, but well worth the splurge in my book. I am not an "apple" person but I love these crispy beauties.
Yesterday, I saw them at Walmart for $1.98/pound. I don't think I have ever seen them priced so low, and I purchased one to see if it's the same quality as Fresh Market's. Oh, yeah. I have a feeling you'll be seeing a few apple recipes in upcoming posts.
Honeycrisps generate such excitement because of their sweet and tart flavors and extreme juiciness, as well as their limited availability: September through December. I look forward to cooking with them, since Fresh Market claims they are good baking apples, too.
Oh, how I love fall! Despite the 90-degree temperatures, I'll pretend there is a nip in the air and cook all my seasonal favorites anyway. That's how we roll in Florida.
