I'd love to see you eat one in the raw. Evil_monster
Something about apples and evil. And snakes aren't really scary either, not the friendly ones.

Unless they're in the raw as well. Hobo

It was just a fucking apple man, we're sorry okay? Please stop the madness Laugh out load

RE: Apple season
Granny Smith and sharp cheddar cheese. ... Macintosh is inedible and is useful only for cooking.

As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
And I will show you something different from either
Your shadow at morning striding behind you
Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you;
I will show you fear in a handful of dust.

RE: Apple season


I watched one and it was hilarious! He leaned up against the apple with his back until the apple was pierced and stuck. Then he got back down and simply walked off with the apple on his back. We used to put milk and/or raw eggs out for them. They can get rather unafraid if you feed them, and they are great in the garden, eating bugs and stuff.

I've seen baby hedgehogs, though... the cutest thing ever.

RE: Apple season
back when I liked apples I liked golden delicious and granny smith.
I don't like apples anymore, generally. But yesterday our dietplan said that we had to eat an apple and we picked something very sweet, and that one was ok.

Also my sister in law brought a big huge box full of apples (she has trees) and so I had to do something with them. I wanted to make apple jam but it came out as compote kinda... with kinda syrup. it didn't firm up enough because I did not put in enough sugar, I think.

Whatever, that stuff is in the cellar now because I love it so much haha

Yes they are! No, he can't climb trees, lol. Drop apples only.

I have several very old apple trees on the property and have no idea what kind they may be. Unfortunately they are slowly fading out now, they are ancient and have definitely seen better days. I have them on "life support" with additional fertilization and drip irrigation, and they did produce enough for my pleasure this year, but I need to start replacing them. There are 4 of them, and I have never seen any like them in any store, and I look. There were also two Golden Delicious trees, and they met their maker years ago. I think the ancient ones must be heirlooms.

One kind is very large, extra crunchy, yellow with greenish/brownish stripes and a bit of blush on the sun side. Very juicy, not too sweet and a bit of a lemony under taste.

Another is normal sized, red and yellow, also very crunchy and super sweet.

Then there are two green cooking apples, tangy but not tart. They get very, very sweet with cooking. They are also in the worst shape and won't be making it much longer.

I want to replace them with desert apples - any suggestion for varieties?

I also have an asian pear tree - this one produces great some years and not well at all on others. This year's crop lacked flavor. Some years they are crunchy and super flavorful. I am listing these in the apple thread because they are really more like apples than pears.

Hehe, I know they don't climb trees Smile I was curious how it works, though, as they have their spikes on their backs and the apples are usually on the ground. I guess they must be rather nimble (actually, yes, they are, since they can curl into a ball and other things).

I'm starting to think our older tree might be Autumn Gold or a Macintosh (but that's just based on pics on the Net). We also have a Red Delicious whose apples are quite good (though only when you pick them from the tree and eat them straight away - most apples after they're picked kind of change, their texture becomes different, a lot like a boiled potato, or at least that's how it feels to me and I don't like it).
I hate losing trees, too. Actually, we were considering tearing our house down and building a new one, but then I realised we would have to cut down the apple-tree (and others as well), so that just sealed it (there were other reasons, obvs., but that one was near the topSmile)

First time I'm hearing about asian pears, they look funny Smile We have several pear-trees, too (the hedgehogs actually prefer them, as they are sweeter; same with blackbirds - one of the pear-trees, whose fruit is really really sweet, they can pick clean in a matter of days, all the time fighting like crazy... funny little buggers, blackbirds).
And just to prove what others have accused me of (that I'm addicted to QI), here's a clip about the difference between pears and apples http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mcrbEf5lr0g

RE: Apple season
Hey Dom, have you tried cloning your heirloom trees? Most apple trees clone pretty easily.

So many cats, so few good recipes.

In what part of the world?! It's long over here Sad I'd pick them over apples any day of the week, as long as they are hard enough for my fingers not to leave a dent in them when pressed...

Or are we talking another meaning that I only discovered while translating a particularity dumb vampire porn book?
