A Pink Lady (a variety of red apple).

Can't stand red apples, they taste different to green ones somehow. Granny Smiths all the way for me! apple01apple01apple01

Peanut butter sandwich, a 5th Avenue candy bar and a bottle of water.

I sometimes skip the sandwich part and just dip a candy bar straight into peanut butter.

I do prefer green (notably Golden Delicious) but decided to eat a different variety of apple each day otherwise i'd get bored after 3 days and not bother.apple01

McIntosh apples are awesome, but they're probably not common at all in Scotland.

Never heard of the McIntosh, which is ironic being in Scotland. My local store only has 4 varieties (Granny Smith, Golden Delicious, Pink Lady and Braeburn). Once had a Fuji apple, so so bland, was like eating an unflavoured rice cake.

I had a Fuji awhile back (I do the different-apple-each-day thing too) and yeah, pretty bland.

Fuji apples do have a taste. It might just depend on where you buy them? We always buy them on the market and they're really good, but when we buy some at the supermarket they taste very different.

I love apples. Red, green, doesn't matter. It's just a pain in the ass to eat them so I usually cut them in smaller parts.

Totally agree. Apples are far better when bought from a fruitshop or market, far more flavour. Sadly there isn't anywhere near that does them as we get all our meat from the local butcher and all our bakery goods from the local baker. The difference in quality and taste is amazing. I also cut apples into smaller parts, something I started when I wacked my tooth out years ago (as mentioned elsewhere).

That's the only way I eat 'em too – never could bear biting into the damn things. Cut 'em in half, halves into quarters, shave off the bits of core/seeds/stem(s) at the four corners and you've nothing left but sweet tart apple meat.

Peanut Butter Crackers. I don't know why but when I'm not eating those I feel like I hate them and then I eat it and I fall in love. Though that's just me.

As a fruit eaten raw, apples are my least favorite -- but I like apple sauce.  Hate apple pie, apple juice, even cider.

There are so many other fruits I'd rather have --banana, honeydew melon, canteloupe, watermelon, strawberry, blueberry, blackberry, orange, tangerine…

Love pears -- yellow or red.  There's such a thing as pear cider, it's called "perry".  Much better than apple cider.

My favorite fruit of all is probably the Mexican "tuna"  (also called prickly pear cactus) -- not the fish, but a cactus fruit, a green fruit full of seeds that you can swallow, insanely juicy, not too sweet.  In this picture below, I've only seen and eaten the green variety.  The skin is can be very sharp and can hurt like needles if you're not carefully peeling it.

Different types of apples' names are copyrighted? I didn't know that.

I don't know if they are, either! I just looked into it, and it was actually McIntosh Laboratories, makers of high-end audio equipment, that threatened to sue Apple. So they made the deal, which included changing the spelling. But that particular apple variety, a hybrid which dates back to 19th century Ontario, was still the guy's favourite, and the source of the name. At least I got that much right!

Yeah! It's also like when you buy bread from the supermarket or at a bakery. Huuuge difference!

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8It really is quite incredible how a piece of chicken can be so much better when it comes fresh from the butcher, the taste and experience is like 5 times better. Mince can even be a different colour during cooking (not as dark)!! I have no idea what supermarkets do to their meat and maybe I don't want to know.

Not now but for tea home-cooked Cottage Pie. Delicious.

Homemade soda bread with butter, blueberry jam and a large mug of tea. Enough to keep me happy for the while.

The same can be said of farm fresh eggs. There is a small farm down the road from us that sells fresh veg, hay, eggs, etc…

Breakfast with those big brown delights is incredible! heart
