What's your favorite apple?

lynnlato | Oct 9, 2013 09:13 AM

I love apples. They are such a simple & easy snack and are packed with lots of flavor and nutrients. My favorites old standbys are Jazz and Honeycrisp. I just had an Aurora apple for the first time today and it had all the qualities I like in an apple - crisp, mild tartness and sweetness, firm texture. I was drawn in by it's pale yellow skin. I prefer a not-so-large apple (some of the Honeycrisp or Fuji apples could kill a person if you lobbed one at their head... just sayin).

I enjoy eating them cut into slices and plain, but I sometimes enjoy them with nut butter (chunky peanut, sunflower, almond) or tossed in a little lime juice or balsamic vinaigrette dressing.

What are some of your favorites and how do you enjoy them?
