(This one is for Elsie.)
On the way back I stopped at Harcourt to buy apples for Beck. It was raining and cold. The rain though has greened things up nicely and glowing through the mist were apple trees still with fruit. Like jewels on the boughs.
I bought Beck a bag of Pink Ladies and grabbed a bag of Fujis as well.
I should explain that I am a very fussy apple eater. They have never been my favourite fruit, kind of too...... um....... apple-y. (Stop laughing! I mean this!) Sometime the flavour is just too much and texture too can be a bit too floury/soft/mealy for me. So every year for the short apple-peak season I might glut on Firm Golds or Fujis. The last good Fuji I had was months ago- that is until today.
THE BEST APPLE I HAVE EVER EATEN.
An unwaxed russet Fuji.
That's it. If I'm going to eat an apple, then every year come autumn and winter, it will involve a trip to Harcourt.
(I might have to get a pair of Elsie's knickers and go apple scrumping!)
