New Taste!

08 Oct

Although I was born and raised in an apple orchard, apples are far from my favorite fruit. The one fruit that is more than plentiful three months a year in my own backyard is very low on my list of desired foods. Banana, strawberry, raspberry, peach, pear, plum, blackberry, nectarine, watermelon, honeydew melon, kiwi, pomegranate, blueberry, and prickly pear all come long before apple in my list of favorite fruits.

To further add to the apple thing, I only like them sweet. I have not felt that any of the early apples (September through early October) were sweet enough. Or, as my father’s father would say, low acid (a sweet apple is just lower in acid, but supposedly not an increase in sugar). That new fangled apple they call Honey Crisp, I don’t get it. I don’t find it sweet. It doesn’t have the delightful flavor (as apples go) of a Golden Delicious or Mutzu or even an early Red Delicious.

However, this year, I found an apple that is both early in the season AND sweet. Talhman Sweet. I’m sold!

Moral of the Story: Things change. Do you? Or do things remain the same, and you’re willing to give them a try … anyway?
