I Love Pippin apples. When I lived in California, the grocery stores always had Pippins. Now that I live in Oregon I cant find any at all. Worse yet, the produce mangers don't know the apple or don't seem to know where to get them. I like the pippins becase the texture is fine and the skin is not as hard as other varieties. The are also a very good size to send along for scool lunches because they are a perfect size for grade school children.


I have two apple trees in my yard that were planted the previous owners. I can't seem to get the spray progam going so I have had "buggy" apples but the ones I cut up (sans bugs) are the tastiest apples ever. I don't know what variety they are but one is red, the other green-yellow.
I like to eat apple uncooked!

My grandma would fry-drain-and crumble bacon. She would sprinkle it - along with shredded yellow cheese - on the top of an apple pie crust. Perhaps this idea could be adapted to a more healthy dessert (no crust).
