What I’m loving right now.
Honeycrisp apples are the freaking bomb. Tart, sweet, crispy…they’re everything I love in an apple. They’re also very pretty, and a really good size for when you want a nice apple to fill you up. Not to mention, they are juicy.
So what is it about the Honeycrisp that inspires such a cult following? Well, it starts with the texture. Honeycrisps are a very hard, crisp apple. In fact, the New York State Apple Association website captures it perfectly when it describes this variety as “explosively crisp” and having a characteristic ability to “shatter” when bitten into, as if it “snaps apart… and comes off the core in chunks.” In that respect, think of biting into a Honeycrisp as producing the same effect as snapping off a piece of a perfectly tempered chocolate bar: that sound… that snap… it’s perfection. Of course, that’s just the beginning. Honeycrisps positively drip with juice, and they’re sweet with just the right balance of tartness.
Does that not sound amazingly delicious?
