Eating a Pink Lady

That may sound a little cannibalistic. Of course, if I added the word “apple” at the end (as you probably guessed) then it would sound less gruesome, but then it would also lose its appeal.

I could also have said “eating a Granny Smith,” but apart from the grammatical awkwardness, I don’t like Granny Smith apples much. I use to when I was younger, but these days they are just too sour for my taste. They are good for baking I hear. Not that I’ve ever baked apple pie.

The one’s I like most are Pink Lady, Royal Gala, and Fiji apples. Golden Delicious is also nice if they are properly ripened, but the shops tend to sell them when they are still very green. Then they are not so nice.

I mostly just eat them fresh. They are very helpful to combat heart burn. At my age that becomes a constant irritation. Instead of using some medication to control heart burn, I prefer to do that by my diet. So, I stay away from those things that tend to give me heart burn. In my case those are spicy food, breads and buttery pastry. Then I have an apple a day. That keeps the doctor away, as they say.
