I’m pretty tired of the apples I’ve been buying lately. It seems that either they are mushy or the core is rotted. Plus, apples aren’t cheap!
You can imagine my delight when I came across the Opal apple at Byerly’s. I almost didn’t buy it because it was $2.99 a pound and the apple itself was a good pound, but I’m not one to resist new foods regardless of price. In doing some research, I found that while it was discovered in Europe in the late 90’s, it was just released in the American market earlier this year.
At home, I cut it into slices and was amazed at the slight banana flavor of this apple – how unique! Plus, it was juicy and crispy, hitting the spot immediately.
Have you seen Opal apples at the store? Tried them? What did you think?
