Real apples, that is. I’m sure that the overpriced electronics giant doesn’t need my blog to do any extra advertising for them.
My wife and I love to go apple picking. Unfortunately, due to weather, illness, and unfortunate scheduling conflicts, we have yet to make the trek to one of the many apple orchards around us (there are times when I love living in Michigan). But all wrongs were made right when we found our favorite apple variety at the grocery store this weekend.
Behold the beautiful Jonagold Apple!
It is sweet, spicy, and has a satisfying crunch. Plus, it is way less expensive than the over-hyped Honeycrisps that I hear so much about.
If you appreciate a good apple too, here’s a recipe to make something good even better. Or, as I like to think of it, here’s how to take something that is moderately healthy and make it fit for American consumption. But all jokes aside, it’s a really good Apple Dip.
Ingredients: 8 oz cream cheese (softened), 1 cup brown sugar, 1 teaspoon vanilla
Directions: Mix until blended. Eat up. Refrigerate what you don’t use.
And if you haven’t gone out an picked up some Apple cider to mull yet, what are you waiting for? Autumn is here and you are just twiddling your thumbs! Go mull some cider!
