there's something about an apple that's so... Americana. right? i mean there's the phrase "as American as apple pie" and the legend of Johnny Appleseed. but what makes it stand out as American as can be is that true shade of red.

now, i know- there are tons of different shades of apples, and even green and yellow apples, but who likes those? when i think of an apple, i think of a shiny deep red with a stem and leaf.

to truly appreciate the characteristics each type of apple has, consider doing some reasearch before picking up a bushel at the market. some apples are good baking apples, some are good for eating. here a a few of my favorite apples, and how i like to use them.
