Happy 4th of July to all of you American bloggers and readers. I was treated to these gorgeous apples by my friend A.’s dad (in addition to equally sumptious plums which I’ve been enjoying all week long). He grows these in his yard along with a variety of vegetables. I’m not quite sure how to officially describe his profession-he has developed various strains of vegetables-but I am very happy to be the recipient of anything that he has grown.
I probably wouldn’t go out and buy apples at this time of year with such an abundance of berries and stone fruit available, but I am thrilled to have these beauties and am thinking about what I should make. Maybe just an old fashioned apple pie to go along with the holiday-oh and topped with vanilla ice cream!
