I love the Washington grown Golden Delicious apples.

i think red delicious apples are actually some kind of celluose construction material, rather than fruit.

Thanks for saying that, nadia! I was starting to think I was alone on that one.

Are Fuji apples a OMOMOCalifornia-only fruit? My fave.

The Washington grown Red Delicious are my second choice after the Golden Delicious.

Fuji apples are popular here in NY, too.  I don't know where they're grown, though.  Large chain grocery stores carry them, but they're much smaller than the ones I get at the local greengrocer.

I tasted my first Honeycrisp apple last month, and I wish I could find them in more places!  A cross between Macoun and Honeygold apples, they're both sweet and tart, very juicy and crunchy.

I like Pippin(sp?) and most tart, green, apples. Even crabapples are tasty but I can't find them outside the midwest.

i wasn't much into apples until moving to california, where i don't like the summer fruit at all. my favorite apples are pink lady, fuji, gala, and braeburn.

as a kid, the only kind of apples i encountered were red "delicious", golden delicious, and mcintosh. the latter were the only vaguely palatable ones, ut i preferred the crab apples from the yard hands down.

That's because you live in the desert where cactus is native.

Move to the Sierra Nevada foothills up around Loomis, Meadow Vista, and follow that band north about 75 miles. Ther is some seriously beautiful land that grows great apples and stone fruit.

That's ENE of Sacramento about 35 miles on I80 toward Reno. Any of the land to the north is magnificent all the way past Grass Valley and Nevada City.

i'm not actually sure where the fruit from the farmer's market comes from, probably not that far north though. i do know that the guavas come from mexico.

this week i don't live anywhere in particular :)

Macouns, which should still be in season, although I've been having trouble finding any this year, are my absolute favorite. Which, given wabe's description, makes Honeycrisp sound promising. If I see any I'll give them a try.

The only apples I really don't like are Golden Delicious.  I only like the Red Delicious is they're really crispy and not the least bit mealy (which they can easly be).  I am losing my taste for the Macs.

When it comes to pies, Granny Smith reigns supreme.

Get me one and I'll try it, because you say they're good, but I still say it's all about the Macoun.

BAKED STUFFED CHICKEN 6-7 lb. Chicken 1 cup melted butter 1 cup stuffing (Pepperidge Farm is good.) 1 cup uncooked popcorn (ORVILLE REDENBACHER'S LOWFAT) Salt/pepper to taste Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Brush chicken well with melted butter, salt, and pepper. Fill cavity with stuffing and popcorn. Place in baking pan with the neck end toward the back of the oven. Listen for the popping sounds. When the chicken's ass blows the oven door open and the chicken flies across the room, it's done.
