I’ve wanted to tell you about these apples for weeks now, but I patiently kept my mouth shut waiting for my turn at Rachel’s Apple a Day party this month.
For approximately 335 days a year I couldn’t care less about apples. Out of all the fruits in the world, they’re usually among my bottom 5. They’re just kind of blah (the amazing Honeycrisp excluded) in my opinion. Give me a summer peach any day over an apple. But come September and cider and apple cider donuts and crowds of city folk flocking to my neck of the suburban woods to visit the apple orchards, I give in to the craze.
And I stuff them with spiced walnuts and brown sugar and top them with whipped coconut cream.
Ok, not really, just this once. But it’s going to become a recurring thing because they were out of this world good. Good enough to maybe make me think about the mostly boring fruit the other 11 months of the year.
Unless you tempt me with a peach.
