I know apples are more of a fall thing, but with our nation's global network of food resources, it's nearly always a great time of year for any produce. My traditional favorite is Granny Smith: it's perfect for cooking and eating out-of-hand. My husband loves Gala apples; my kids, Red Delicious. If you want the precise combination of sweet and tart, look no farther than Honeycrisp! I've recently discovered those, and I can't stop eating them! Most sweet apples tend to be soft, but like the name says, these are crisp and sweet and juicy. Try them, and as Adrian Monk says, "You'll thank me later."
