Arkansas Black Applemania!

Every year, beginning around October, I start whining and pestering the produce folks at Berkeley Bowl and Monterey Market about these apples. I become a 5 year old sitting in the back seat of the family car as we start out on vacation: "Are we there yet? Are we there yet?" Finally, yesterday, at Monterey Market, they WERE there! I grabbed a bunch and could hardly wait until we got home to devour one.

What a treat! The crispest, tartest, darkest apple around. I hesitated to write about them due to fear that others would buy them all up, but then I decided that it could make the BB and the MM purchase more and more to fill the demand.

So now I have to get back to Berkeley immediately so I can stock up.

Has anybody cooked with them? I never have any left over after gobbling them all up immediately upon arriving home.

!Que viven los Negros de Arkansas!
