    I love the personification of apple names. I always think of Braeburn as a poet. Something like Swinburne.

    We’ve got a granny smith that is prodigious. Normally every year we get a huge batch of applesauce from it. But this year, I learned a difficult lesson. When adding sugar to that HUGE pot of fresh applesauce from your own tree, be careful it’s not salt.

      Yes, Braeburn does sound like a Scottish poet. Oh no, salty apple! I’m sure I had a recipe for Egyptian Apple Soup – it’s probably salty.

    I always wished I had a horse and now I know without a shadow of a doubt, his name would have been Braeburn. Love.

    Granny smith was Australian. Would that influence her ability to play darts?
