Red Delicious Apples - Delicious!

Just when I was convinced that Red Delicious apples are the most flavorless of all apple varieties, I was proven wrong. This weekend, we went to the Ann Arbor and visited their yearround farmers' market. For some reason, I was expecting a nice variety of fresh fruits and vegetables but since Ann Arbor is only about 1 hour away from Lansing, I guess I shouldn't be surprised that their farm-fresh produce selection was a bit thin. But we ended up buying some wonderful salad greens and a 1/2 peck of Red Delicious apples - a nice reprieve from all of the California-grown produce at the grocery store. The apples are from Kapnick Orchards in Britton and just as their name suggests...they are delicious.

We used to go to Kapnick's all the time when I was a kid! They were just down the road from my elementary school--it's a great old place. I'm unsurprised their apples were delicious.
