Have you ever heard of Honeycrisp apples? Have you ever had a Honey Crisp Apple? Oh MY GOD. I don't really mean to blog about apples, on the site that is supposed to be about my family, and who really likes apples that much to care let alone write a blog post about it. Not usually me, but OH MY GOD. You must find one, and eat it. If you can.
If you can? Yes, because they are GIANT. I bought the smallest ones I could find at the grocery store (HEB is the place to get them for those who live in Texas!) and I could barely finish it. They are the priciest apples on the block, but worth every penny. I think I paid over three bucks for just two apples.
So what is so great about them? Crisp like a fall night in the mountains. NOT mealy and mushy like Red Delious Crapples. SWEET like honey. So juicy, you will need a napkin or a long sleeve to wipe your chin.
They are perfect for sharing because they are so big. I just like to get a head start on it before I tell Maddie that I have one to share. Why? Because she will HOG MY APPLE.
"Oh, Mama! An apple! I want some!"
"What? Oh, tifs...not eh afflepl. Just a mama snapftr. Hre, eat 'em cookies insead!"
How pathetic is the fact that I have to hide in the pantry scarfing an apple so my toddler doesn't see (and hear) me!? That's low, folks. LOW.
Francie, I know you love your Braeburns, but you have GOT to try these!
