Saturday Night Snack--von drei Laender

Those Arkansas Black apples are quite tasty!  They're different, somehow, from a Red Delicious, which is my usual choice, but my experience isn't enough to be able to define exactly how it is that they're different.  Still, very good.

I thought it might be nice to have something to dip the apples in so I broke out what's left of the homemade honey I bought on the Big Island over the summer.  The dragonfruit/ginger honey is amazing on an apple slice!

But wait, there's more.  I was going to make myself some tea, but as I was getting out the honey I saw this:
I don't know about nutmeg or a bay leaf--or even straining it, for that matter!--but the cocoa tea I picked up on St. Lucia in June is quite good.  It's tea so it's not "rich" like hot chocolate, but it definitely tastes like bitter, unsweetened chocolate (which in itself isn't that bad).  A little honey and cinnamon, though, and it's quite good.

An evening snack--from three lands.  One way to relive my travels....

I must recommend ... pink lady apples. Tarter than Red Delicious, less tart than Granny Smith; similar in look and feel to Fujis. They tend to be pricey ... but they are worth it.

Oooh, Honeycrisp apples. For once the name accurately describes the product.
