VeganMoFo: Rome Apples

When I saw these perfectly red Rome apples, reminiscent of the poison apple from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, I knew I had to relax my rule about avoiding red apples. You see, red apples tend to have a mealy texture and I don't care for that. I knew I was taking a risk, but the Romes were just so pretty that I had to give them a chance. I wish I could tell you that I'd had nothing to worry about, but the Romes I chose were, in fact, mealy despite the fact that they seemed firm. Disappointing, but sometimes its worth it to venture into new territory.

I also don't eat the red's unless there's nothing else, and I don't like the super sour greens. My faves are all the in between colors. Go for pink lady's or honeycrisp. Good fuji's shouldnt be mealy either.
