Whoa, I feel like I haven’t touched the blog in forever. I got promoted and started to pretty much work 24/7, and now I’m trying to re-adjust my work/life balance. We also celebrated Apollo’s first birthday by sending me to the hospital with a head to toe allergic reaction. So much f-u-n! We were able to make up for it and spend that weekend at the park with family, eat yummy food and cake, and open presents. Apollo enjoyed himself, and he won’t remember it anyway, so all is well.
Anyway, have you ever seen pink pearl apples? They are so incredibly beautiful, sweet, tart and unfortunately not available year-round – at least where I live. They’re an heirloom variety, and were cultivated back in 1944 by Albert Etter. Well, thank you sir, because my family thoroughly enjoys them. The outside of the apple looks like tie-dye colors of a granny smith and a pink lady combined. It’s swirly green and pink goodness. The inside is what is really amazing- it’s bright pink!
I use our ninja blender to lightly puree it and Apollo eats it like chunky apple sauce. It’s the best blender because it comes with individual cups and blades so that I can quickly make whatever we’re eating into something easier for Apollo to chew. I’m so glad we made the investment. We like to store Apollo’s left overs in these awesome glass containers by Green Sprouts.
Look at it! It’s bright pink baby food… I just love it.
I like to eat them as is, or warmed up in some gluten-free muesli or oatmeal. It tastes like apple pie for breakfast. L O V E!
Have you ever tried pink pearls? What’s your favorite apple variety?
