As you know, I am an apple connoisseur. Apples are one of my favorite foods, bar none.
But not just any old apple. No thanks to Golden or Red Delicious, Macs or Galas, Granny Smiths, or Cortlands.
My favorite apples of all time are, in order of my adoration:
1. Mutsu (Crispin)
2. Honey Crisp
4. Pink Lady
What are Pazazz apples? I am so glad you asked! They are a new variety I just discovered and they are AWESOME!
They are a relative on the Honey Crisp which I discovered on sale at Loblaws a few weeks ago. They are MASSIVE, sweet, tart, crisp and delicious. The whole family loved them.
Unfortunately, after introducing them for a special price, they tripled the price to $2.99/lb and since each apple is about a pound, they are now a little too much of a luxury (when I can find my favorite Mutsu for 99 cents a pound at the market. But I'll be keeping my eyes peeled for another sale.
I love it when you discover something new and delicious created by Mother Nature because it means not only does it taste good, but its good for you.
If you think you don't like fruits or veggies, I challenge you to try a new kind once a week, and try cooking or serving them in different ways. Frankly, since we have been eating stuff that grows since the beginning of time, it doesn't make sense to me how a person can not like eating plants. Its like a rabbit not liking carrots!
So go...eat some plants!
