When I was in Boston, I purchased a new (to me) apple variety in Copley Square called a "Spencer." Now I know what apple heaven is like.

I'd be lying if I said the name didn't draw me to the ppple.

Crazy how out of 2 bad apple varieties (McIntosh/Golden Delicious) they can create awesomeness.

McIntosh sucks but Macoun is fantastic.

The Macoun is tasty and it's no surprise that it is thought to be the "mystery parent" of the Honeycrisp.

Went to the cider mill today and they had a sign saying todays cider was made with honey crisp and gala apples. It is top notch.

For my future brother-in-law's bachelor party, we stayed in a cabin deep in the woods of the White Mountains, cooking on gas stoves with whatever was brought in. A few of those spencers that I purchased in Copley Square went into a batch of warm apple cider that I put on the stove during the coldest night. After adding bourbon and a touch of some local maple syrup, the sliced apples really took on some character.

I wish there was a decent apple culture in Texas.

No way. I'm just heavily influenced by an internet full of northerners.

Reid needs to learn how to swear better to be a northerner at heart.

Pinatas (Pinova) at my Safeway. Sweet at first, with a slightly tart finish. So good!

Grabbed some Green Dragons and Ambrosias today. Green Dragons were disappointing, but the Ambrosias are nice.
