A rose by any other name is still a rose….

It is days like today when I take a bite of my apple that I have to jump online and tell anyone within earshot of this great experience. 

A Pacific Rose apple, if you have not already  had the pleasure to try, is an apple that is seasonal and hard to find and rather spendy vs. other apples in the store.  The thin skin on the outside lends to a beautiful crunch when you bite into it.  It is sweet, but not overly sweet.  It is crunchy.  There is no tartness.  It is the perfect eating apple.

The first season is from New Zealand from June to September, and just when you start to crave them again, they come back but from out of Washington from December to March.

So if you haven’t tried this amazing treat, run to your local produce section and check it out!  Let me know what you think?

About heylaydee

An average cook, an enthusiasm for experimenting and trying new things, is the reason for this blog. That and I found myself in the “empty nest” syndrome and needed an outlet. So I picked up the camera that was collecting dust, got out the pile of recipes, contacted friends and family for their favorites and starting cooking again. What could be better than a glass of wine, a hot stove, and creativity? Come along for the ride. I will be blogging about food, family, and anything else that inspires me.
