Last year for Christmas, my mom gave us Martha Stewart’s Baking Handbook. Unfortunately, the oven in our old house was broken, so while we drooled over the pictures, we didn’t get much chance to use it. But now we have a fully functioning kitchen again, plus it’s baking season!
This past weekend, New Seasons Market had an apple tasting with about 20 varieties from the fall crop. A lot of them were really tasty, and I came home with about 10 lbs.
Going clockwise starting with the basket, they are Liberty, Arlet, Rosalyn, and Ambrosia. The Ambrosias are currently my favorite for eating out of hand. The Liberties, on the other hand, have the tartness and firmness that puts a singular thought in one’s mind, the logical combination of the preceding paragraphs.
