This late 18th century or early 19th century Georgian Glass Fruit Bowl is one of my favorite things. It looks especially lovely filled with whatever is in season. Right now, the fruit of choice is apples.
Golden delicious from upstate New York...unwaxed, no stickers, hard, tart and crisp; just the way I like them. I can't tell that they are very different from last week's favorite ~ Ginger Gold. They are so good raw, I can't bear the thought of cooking them.
I should have used Granny Smith apples for St. Patrick's Day and the wearing (and eating) of the green. What is your favorite variety?
