NH Labor Day Weekend Apple Update
No matter what your taste buds prefer, sweet or tart, everybody should be happy with the apple choices available this weekend in the Granite State.
I apologize for those of you who are at the 'professional' level of apple appreciation. This stock photo clearly shows me proudly displaying two Cortland apples and any pro knows that they won't be available for at least a couple of weeks.
Yesterday, I went to Milton NH and was very pleased to see both the sweet and tart AND mild flavors nicely represented and ready for purchase at McKenzie's Farm.
For those that prefer a sweeter apple, I'm happy to announce that several bags of Jonah Golds were available, both in bags and PYO.
If you prefer a more standard mild apple, the Zestar is a great choice to make and will stay crisp for quite some time.
We apple enthusiasts refer to this as a 'keepah'. Whether this means that you can keep it for weeks and still enjoy it OR that it 'keeps' it crispness is always up for debate.
Are you a MacIntosh snob?
The Mac is such an underrated apple. Most people have the misconception that the cellophane bags in grocery stores that are filled with sad mushy weak apples are representative of all MacIntosh apples.
If you're out apple picking this weekend, I'm begging you to try a fresh MacIntosh. They're one of the most popular apples for a reason and believe it or not, they're one of the most tart on the flavor scale.
