Is there a saying about nothing being better than an apple picked straight from a tree? I don’t think there is. There should be. Because, there is nothing like eating an apple picked straight from a tree.
The apples I gathered from the orchard yesterday had the sweetest, crispest, most awakening flavor of any apple I have ever tasted. No, I am not exaggerating. They are that incredible.
I just wanted to share my enthusiasm, and some pictures. In fact, I am so excited about these apples from Barnard’s, that I plan on having an apple tasting party. More about flavor comparisons after the fact.
For now, I am still consuming at least two apples a day, mostly Empire, which are my current obsession. They are sweet and extraordinarily juicy, with a crisp smack.
