Backyard Apples

Friends dropped off a bag of apples yesterday. I thought, good, I can make some apple crisp. That was until I tasted them. These are terrific apples. Crisp, sweet, just a bit tart, and pretty to boot. A complete surprise to everyone. The tree produces woody, sour apples most years, more decorative than edible (except to the squirrels who always love them). But this year the tree decided to show us all what it could do.

I know nothing about apple propagation, so don’t know what changed, I’m just glad it did. Because it’s apple season and I love apples.
