There’s always one pink speckled apple in the bunch….er, bad apple?
(~Edit~ Apparently PhotoBucket finds something offensive about the above photo. I don’t know what’s wrong with it, but they removed it for terms violation. Is there something dirty there that I don’t see? Is my thumb copyrighted? Are pink apples illegal in some countries? I’m so confused.)
I remember last fall that apples were on sale for dirt cheap and I was so excited to snatch up a large set for myself. As I started peeling the first one for my massive apple cooking adventures that day, I noticed that not only was it red on the outside….but also on the inside.
Now unless you’re well-acquainted with this yourself, you’re probably thinking that I just didn’t peel deep enough and that’s actually red tint left from the skin still. Wrong. I thought that might be the case myself, but I cut into it and it had pink/red vein-looking streaks all the way through.
I set it aside and moved to another, thinking it was maybe just “the bad apples of the bunch,” but nope, it turns out that several of my apples were pink to the core (especially the one on the right).
