Apple

An apple: basic, even pedestrian. Yet essential. I love bike riding on the rail trail in the apple orchard, sailing through a curtain of apple scent. What is better than biting into the first apple of the season? Crisp and fresh and juicy, all of the past summer squeezed into one bite.

I know. I sound like Martha Stewart. Unlike Martha, I do not care to pick my own apples or cook them or decorate the house with them. On the other hand, I eagerly and gratefully eat the ones people pick and cook for me.

The peanut farmers want you to believe that peanuts are among the most versatile foods: they go with chicken and chocolate. But apples are even more versatile. They go well with other fruits, vegetables, all meats, alcohol, sugar, butter, flour, eggs, and peanuts.
