Did you see that bunny on DR this morning? ONLY a HoneyCrisp would do.
Well ... in as much as yes, the HoneyCrisp WAS developed in Minnesota (where Cinnamon lives) BUT Washington is, in fact, the Apple Capital of the World, this begged for further investigation here at The House of Rabbits.
To top it off, a certain young granddaughter living in Wenatchee, the Heart of the Apple Capital, was part of the 2008 Apple Festival Junior Royalty, and she happens to be quite partial to Galas, as are we.
Now, typically the HoneyCrisp is a VERY pricey apple here in our parts, even though they are grown here. Designer brand I guess! But today I happened to be in a store where they were $1.48/lb so I bought one to test the DR hypothesis.
First let me say that I have looked, now, at many HoneyCrisp apples in person and in pictures and I must report that the apple on DR could have fooled me into thinking it was, in fact, a HoneyCrisp.
Anyway, I sliced off a bit of my apple and tasted it .. nothing special for me. Then I put it in the condo of Lucky and Winston - results below. Lucky liked it and chewed and chewed, Winston tried to push it down the hole.
Later tonight we will give each bun a slice and watch the results, for further investigation. Stay tuned for more on this top breaking story.
