Listen to the Apples Falling All Around You

April 17th, 2012 | Fruit Maven

I was about to write about White Indian Guavas today, when the following quote caught my eye on Facebook this morning.  (You are friends with me – right?) It captured me from the first words and then of course locked me in it’s grips by the end.

True Confession: I haven’t read this book, nor in fact any books by this author (though I just put it on my list for this summer). Actually, I barely read fiction. I did indulge in the Twilight series and Hunger Games and enjoyed every delicious bite of those books. Before you start judging me for those choices, you should know what else is on my night stand, because you know — I can’t have you walking away thinking I’m a 16 year old girl.  Though, now that I say it aloud I guess that wouldn’t be so bad.

All of these book have to do with adventure and wrestling through really living life  in their own way, as does the quote above.  Today I’m just going to try to be thankful that I am in fact tasting as many apples as I can. And those tastes, those bites, are in and of themselves, enough.

    Haven’t read the book you quoted, but can highly recommend The Master Butchers’ Singing Club, also by Erdrich. Also culinarily minded, but meat focused (clearly) rather than produce. Oh, are you vegan…?

    Funny that you mentioned apples, since we’re about to lose them from the market season-wise. At this point they’re pretty much all on the ground already – except the “Anna,” developed in Israel and ready in July. Have you tried them? My parents in Phx have an Anna tree (with a treehouse!) in their backyard.

    Thanks Megan – I’ll have to check it out. I am not vegan :)

    And I have tried the Anna. We have them at one of the markets here and a friend of mine also has a tree in her yard. See here for my review of them.
