The recipe very specifically calls for Granny Smith apples…but if that’s not your favorite kind of apple, you don’t have to do it, man. Just ‘cause there’s, like, this recipe structure in place that tells you what you want is a Granny Smith apple…I don’t know…maybe you go to college, and you’ve decided that you wanna experiment with, like, the Fuji apples for a little bit. And maybe when you take a couple of bites of a Fuji apple, who is nothing but good to you, you decide that you wanna leave. Like, that’s cool. That’s a thing. That’s OK! Haha. You just eat the core out of that Fuji apple. You take its heart, and you leave. That’s fun. That’s fun for you. Long story short, eat whatever apples you want. Just remember: apples have feelings, you cunt bitch!
