Honeycrisp apples straight from the orchards in Minnesota can not be touched IMHO. My wife makes a KILLER loaf of apple bread with them. This time of year I eat 4 or 4 of them a day. Mmmmm... gonna go grab one now. I have a lot of family up there. My wife is currently in Omaha and when she comes back she is bringing 3 boxes of freshly picked apples back. Her parents went up and hand picked them the weekend before. I can't wait!
