Default Favorite eating apples

I try to include an apple in my diet every day and most of the time itís Honey Crisp. Today our store had one Iíve never heard of - Autumn Glory - thatís supposed to have a hint of cinnamon and caramel ! Be still my heart !
I can say I think itís very good. Didnít really notice cinnamon but I did detect caramel. Firm and crisp.

I have Galas right now and they are very crisp and juicy. Of course I get mine directly from the Apple farm which are better then store apples.

Red delicious are my favorite, but I do enjoy a granny smith once in awhile.

I love apples and eat all sorts, being here in Washington state we have a lot of options. I've tried the new Cosmic Crisp, I really like it but will have to wait until more trees come into production/prices go down. I think it will be a great addition to juices eventually.

I do like the Honey Crisp, they are best fresh and don't store over the year well in my opinion.

Opal is my usual choice for an eating apple right now if they are in stock. Yellow and rather pointy, sweet lightened with just a bit of tartness. Crisp and juicy and they don't turn brown fast, since I'm only allowed half an apple a day I notice that.

My favorite eating apple is Macintosh. That being said, I keep granny smiths because I like to preslice them to take with me for a snack on the go and they are very slow to turn brown.

Ambrosia is one of my favorites. There is another but I can't remember the name right now and it wasn't in the store last time I shopped.

It is very good with havarti cheese. I also use it in tuna salad instead of celery. My son is not a celery fan, and the honey crisp chopped gives us the crunchy bite we like in tuna salad.
