Oh, maybe it was all just a big tease! There were no Honeycrisp apples today at Central Market. One of the Produce guys said he thought that the ones from the weekend were just an early shipment, as they only received like one box of them, from California. He thinks the ones from Washington are the best, but said those usually don't come until November. He let me try a Jonagold, and it had nice sweet-tart flavor, but the texture wasn't nearly as crisp. Not the same.
I had my heart set on a nice juicy, crisp HC.... sniff, sniff.
