Yes, Just a few, as I believe we discussed some time back in another thread! Apple pie no cinnimon eh, what spice do you substitute?? I am curious and is it good! I'd love to make you a pie!! LOL
My dear friends, I intend to intrude on your jocularity. Back to the original question. It is just a matter of hunman intervention - horticulture if you will. Green appels are immature apples. Those species of appels developed for human consumption have been developed to be not quite as tart nor, shall we say, purgative, as an immiture red apple which can cause a bad stomach ache an a visit to the privy.I am a Granny Smith man myself.
I dont believe that the colour has anything to do with it, I assume the green breed you eat is a Granny Smith which are pretty much the most tart (tartest?) apples available on a widespread basis. However I find a Jonathan (red) apple to be very tart (almost comparable to the Granny Smith) and a Crispin or a Gala apple (both greeny in colour) to be very sweet. Repeating, its a specific breed thing, probably due to the amount of pectin found in the type of apple (Jonathan have one of the highest concentrations, or so the sheet on apples at my gym says). Well enough of my rambling, I'm going to answer that the tartness of an apple, has little to do with colour and more to do with Pectin levels.Oh and by the way, the only reason I know this stuff is cause the area that I grew up in is kinda famous for its orchards, and most of my friends growing up (well those with money) all had farms with orchards, so I've been growing/picking/eating/baking apples for a long while now. And my grandmother makes an excellent apple pie (her rule - only use spys [hint:spy rhymes with pie] as they dont get mushy and they retain their flavour when cooked.
Joke:A man enters a grocery and ask"I would like two apples""Red or green?""Doesn't matter, 'cause I take the skin of them off!"
Yes and so is the person who shared it with us...hehe
Won't an apple from a frost cover tree be...a frozen apple ?
not to long as you don't want them on too long!

Some white grapes are left on the branches, and picked only after the first frost. Apparently this gives an extra sugar content, but has a positive effect on other flavours too of the wine. The name they give it in German is "Eiswein".For more details, check the article on "ice wine" in the English version of Wikipedia.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ice_wine
