A crisp apple. I recently started eating Ginger Gold Apples. They are slightly tart, very crispy, and just sweet enough. Perfection. I buy them at the Honest Weight Co-op. That place and the Troy Farmers’ Market really opened a whole new world of apples to me. I grew up eating Red Delicious and all of the other standard varieties at the grocery store. But then at the Troy Farmers’ Market, I had a honey crisp. Oh my, was that delicious. And then I recently had a Cameo apple (again at the co-op), which almost tasted like a pear. I’m open to suggestions on some great apples out there. A caveat, I’m really not a big fan of Granny Smiths. Keep them coming please.
Also, I just had to share this picture of the really sweet, couldn’t stop eating them heirloom tomatoes from our garden. They were a mixture of Green Zebra, Cherokee Purple, and Striped German, all of the starter plants were from the Farm at Miller’s Crossing. J used this recipe, Heirloom Tomato Salad, at Epicurious.com. Really freaking good.
