One of My Favorite Little Companies

I buy from these nice people every year. Their products make great gifts and let you feel good about supporting “biodiversity.” I’m referring to Applesource, an Illinois based family farm that grows and ships an amazing variety of incredibly tasty and beautiful apples. Many of the tasty ones are not beautiful, but all of the beautiful ones (among those that I’ve tried) are at least good. (They have some really ugly potato-ish apples that are remarkably tasty. I recommend the “Ashmead’s Kernel,” which is described online as “ugly by modern standards” and “tart (not for sissy palates).”
