Apples: I'm not talking about Mac's or I-phones.
Put your Macintosh computer down and pick up a real Macintosh - a glorious apple if ever there was one!
Nothing is better than a fresh picked Macintosh apple.
MOORESVILLE, NC - I want to start with a disclaimer, I LOVE Macintosh apples, so I will always be biased towards them. All right then, I'm a New Yorker (that would be the Southern Tier- like the deep south of New York State, not the city). We lived in Pine City, which wasn"t that far from apple country. When I was a kid, every year (or so it seemed) we would go pick apples and bring them back to our little yellow 3 bedroom ranch house. My mother would can applesauce to go along with all of the tomatoes, tomato sauce, tomato juice, pickles, green beans, and sometimes succotash that she had already finished canning. We would place the rest in a wooden box or other container outside on our patio by the steps.
Ohhh, the apple pies! I've never tasted a better apple pie than the one my mother used to make (and I've eaten a lot of apple pies!). My sister Peggy's is a close second. During that time (fall and almost all through winter sometimes) "an apple a day" turned into 3 or 4! It seemed like every time I passed the container I had to get an apple out and eat it. I was compelled, almost as an instinct - like the squirrels gather and store nuts for the winter.
Slice of heavenly apple pie.
I often wondered why we never picked any other type of apple other than Macintosh. Every time I bit into a crisp, juicy, sweet and tangy Mac - I remembered. To this day, I've never tasted an apple that could compare! Any of the Delicious variety - thumbs down, Fuji - not a lot to offer, Pink Ladies, not my style; Rome - no taste, Cortland - close, but no cigar. Granny Green's (Smith) are great if you wanted a tart one - but they are better for pies!
The Mac is the most durable, long lasting, tasty, and juicy apple; good for about anything. It is the premier, top shelf apple. Again - I am biased!
There is nothing like heading out on a Saturday, grabbing a cold apple from the patio, and heading down the road on you bicycle to your friend's house, munching all the way. That sure will get you ready for the football game in the lot next to Billy K's house. Well I hope you enjoyed your encounter with the Macintosh apple. Now all you have to do is to go down to the Farmer's Market or your local grocery store and grab a bunch of Mac's and enjoy!
