Yes, I realize this is an Asian Pear and not exactly an apple, but you get the idea. I was eating them just now.
I've had other loves over the years... pineapples, mangoes, mangosteens, strawberries, kiwis, pears, lychee, dragonfruit etc... But none ever surpassed my beloved apple of any shape, size or variation.
In a list of my ultimate comfort foods, a fresh, juicy sweet apple is on my top five list. Give me a good apple and I'm happy. It's one of the simple secrets to my heart. Shhh..
Great story, right?
Shush. I love my apples.
