I picked up some apples today at the farmers' market. I went with a new variety that I hadn't seen before - opalescent. I picked them up from market regular Keown Orchards. Check them out at http://www.keownorchards.com/varieties.html.
They told me that the apples are good for baking - so I'm going to whip up a batch of apple kugel muffins tonight after dinner! Stay tuned!
