The BEST apple?
NPR did a taste test recently to determine the apple that most skillfully and deliciously tolerated heat. Growing up in Virginia, there was no contest - any apple that came off the tree at a orchard was ten times better than a store bought apple, and Granny Smiths are overdone and too tart! While the NPR taste test results yielded an admiral result, the Honeycrisp, I have to tell you...the best apple to nosh on or bake with will always, ALWAYS be the Stayman-Winesap. Available as one or the other or a heritage varietal, these apples are top notch and my autumns never feel complete without sinking my teeth into one.
