Russet Apples

One of my favourite eating apple varieties is the English Egremont Russet. It's different from the bland modern apples that are nothing more than bags of wet sugar. While on holiday in France this New Year, I came across a relative, the Reinette grise du Canada, a popular French variety of russet that came from England via Canada. It's a older variety and slightly larger in size, but very similar in texture and flavour - well worth finding.
