Snack Attack – Ambrosia Apples
Do you ever go into the market and realize you have no idea what the difference is between the 10 varieties of a fruit?
“I just want an apple!” you think.
But then you say to yourself, “but not a red one…or a granny apple….I wonder what this multi-colored one tastes like…”
One day the produce guy at Whole Foods saw me wandering the apple isle and said, “Would you like to try the Ambrosia, it’s the best. It’s only in season a few months out of the year, you should enjoy them now.”
He gladly cut me a slice to sample and let me tell you, they are indeed delicious! An ambrosia apple isn’t too sweet and has a texture that is somewhere between a red and granny apple. It’s juuuuust right.
What you’ve learned today: Ambrosia apples are damn tasty. Start up a conversation with the produce guy to learn more about your options.
