Were your apple choices restricted as a kid? I recall having Red Delicious, Granny Smith, and Gala apples in my house on a regular basis. I never really put much thought into it. During college, a friend introduced me to Pink Lady apples, which automatically takes me back to Grease. But that’s not what today’s post is about. So, I won’t entertain that side story.
