    What is your favorite apple?

    Here in Ohio apple season has begun. I went out yesterday and picked a dozen Honeycrisp apples at a local orchard.

    To me the Honeycrisp is the best apple to snack on. In my opinion it’s the perfect balance of crisp, sweet, tart and juiciness.

    What is your favorite apple to snack on.



      Most of the year, I go with Fuji as they are easy to find. Pink lady are my favorites lately though.


        Honey Crisp is our favorite


          Granny Smith or Fuji


            Granny Smith
            I like a firm crisp apple and Grannies fit the bill for me


              So many to choose from. Honeycrisp is probably my #1. Ambrosia and pink lady are up there too.




                  Macoun We have Macintosh here but I don't like them as much as I used to. Locally we have a Spencer apple which is a cross between a red delicious and empire.

                    Honeycrisp is my all around favorite. The new Cosmic Crisp is pretty amazing though, but hard to find in my area, usually at Costco.


                      One named “Envy”. Seems to be across between honeycrisp and Fuji.


                        I'm a very big fan of the Honey Crisp and Cosmic Crisp. I'm eager to try the latest lab apple, the SweeTango, which is said to be a successor to the Honey Crisp, but I haven't come across any in my area.

                          Sweet Tangos are great

                        My all time favorite is an oldy - Winesap. But none are available locally, and the last time we picked apples, the orchard only had one Winesap tree, and it was a standard size. The apples were so high up we couldn't reach 'em...


                          Honey Crisp, First Kiss, and River Belle


                            Cosmic crisp

                            The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.
