Huzzah! Arkansas Blacks at Berkeley Bowl today!

I have been scouring BB and Monterey Market for the past month looking for my absolute all-time favorite apples - Arkansas Blacks. I've been making do with Cameos - quite nice. Every time I went to Berkeley Bowl since the beginning of November, I've searched or asked if they were in yet. Negative every time. Today, I didn't ask, but I was figuring that soon I'd have to admit defeat and give up. They'd never been this late before.

Encore de huzzah! There they were, I grabbed about 10 of them and put them in my cart.

After dinner tonight, my dessert was AB. I offered a taste to my husband (albeit grudgingly) but he just said that he didn't see what the big deal was. Thoughts of divorce swam in my mind. Then I thought of something my father used to say when we turned down anything: "All the more for me!"

I just finished my first one and it was every bit as tart, crisp, and tough of skin as the ones I remember from last year and the year before that and the year before that and.....wah? Was I out long?

Best, Oakjoan
