Also a couple of pink ladies and a big red. It varies the flavor at breakfast time. How about you? Do you like the McIntosh also?

@edgarblythe,
Pink ladies are exquisite. Their season of sane prices doesn't last nearly long enough.

Actually, the apples available in my store are not that good these days. Which is the main reason I have been switching around. I need to shop around.

@edgarblythe,
sealpoet asked me to bring along some

when I visited the east coast gang many years ago

I was glad to oblige. I'm not sure if his dentist appreciated my effort.




Once a year, I like a mac like this

The pink ladies I bought other times are my favorites. Think I will check the pears next time.

@ehBeth,
Ahhhh, Il Fornaio used to sell those, as Involtini de Mele. Be still my heart - at the heart of the apple was some sort of almond paste..

@Rockhead,
It's a glycerine soap that some a2ker really likes.. maybe or maybe not Chai.
But the peel makes it a scrub..

@edgarblythe,
It's the mules you like...


So, anyone know where to buy boric acid?

@edgarblythe,
Ah. I've been using the packaged 20 mule team borax (I forget the name of the product, and I don't want to unwrap the box to check). Saw my first cockroach of the season yesterday. It's been a long time since the last one. They chill my soul.
Had them in my first so called apartment, a tack on place to a duplex (the one with the playboy bunny of the year next door), and moved because of the roaches, forty years ago.

To explain, I don't think I can keep them out of my house without a kitchen re-do, undersink cabinet mess, and I can't do that now. Lately I've been winning in the As-Is war.

Back to apples.
Or, oranges.

@ossobuco,
I use sugar, cornmeal and just a little boric acid, mixed and set as bait. If you get just the right mix it exterminates the roaches totally. They eat it up fast.

@edgarblythe,
I use 20 mule team whatsit, sugar, and cocoa.


Hmmm.
