I’ve been watching episodes of MasterChef on Hulu.
I just wanna say that I’m really glad they gave an apron to the guy who made an apple pie.
If you can make a really good apple pie, you’ve got cooking talent. To understand apples is to understand the essence of pure flavor.
ETA: Nevermind, he’s been eliminated already.
This Sonya™ apple looks a little weird. Extra long and narrow. And very lopsided. Can’t stand up! But mostly a nice red color.
But it tastes good! Nicely sweet.
And very juicy!
Texture is pretty good. Not too mushy. Not really crisp, but sufficiently crisp.
I wanna mention again that it tastes really good. I’m getting the sweetness the website promised. Very nice. I ate it outside. A lovely summer’s day apple.
I rate this apple “Sonya™-rific” on the Not Honeycrisp scale.
You heard right. A Sonya apple. What the hell is a Sonya apple? Asked and answered.
I got it because it was different! Plus, the label is really cool. The font for “Sonya” is quite cool. I do judge apples by their stickers…
This apple looks pretty good. Very red! and stripey. Kinda tall and narrow. Odd shape.
Hmm. Not crisp. Not totally mush, but definitely more on the mushy end of the texture spectrum.
Nice flavor. Mildly sweet. Not very strong flavor, but nicely sweet.
I kinda like it. Nothing spectacular, but perfectly apple-y. It’s kinda like a slightly different red delicious. I did like the amount of apple I got out of this narrow shaped apple. I got a fair amount of snacking from this one apple.
I rate this apple “pretty good” on the Not Honeycrisp scale.
P.S. According to the website, it’s a cross between a Gala and Red Delicious. No wonder it reminded me of a red delicious! but with the coloring of a gala. They took two boring standard apples and made another boring standard apple! Not that that’s a bad thing. Even boring standard apples are pretty good.
P.P.S. Excuse me! I meant to say “the Sonya™ apple.”
I used a birthday coupon to Bread Garden. I got some fancy apples. Get excited.
I just realized I am out of apples.
I didn’t go grocery shopping this weekend! It was my birthday on Sunday, so I was just relaxing and didn’t do any errands.
Oh no. I will probably get apples tonight, but I’m not sure what I’m gonna do about lunch today.
