as promised, this installment of APPLES TO APPLES includes our first apple from a farm other than devoto gardens. it also has two new devoto apples. all in all, a light week, but one with old favorites and new surprises.
the fuji is a very popular, or at least available, apple. it is very sweet, perhaps even overly sweet, with a nice crisp texture and lots of juice. the fuji’s shortcomings are two-fold: one, as i said, it can be overly sweet; and two, its skin is not awesome. i am not sure if it’s too thick or too chewy or what it is, but it gets in the way. i have a couple more of these in the fridge, and i’m thinking i’m going to skin those before i eat them.
