My favorite apple to eat out of my hand is the MacIntosh. It brings a smile to my face to see this so easily bruisible baby in a market.
Second fave in the hand is Golden Delicious.
I start out eating them plain, but then shake a little salt on them. Do other people do this?
I am noted among friends for being a salt lover. Don't salt pizza, will buy unsalted butter then salt it when spread on bread. Not always, we all do change our habits.
Lol, except for hating washing my own dishes, which is why I'm still on the puter and not in the kitchen
