My husband cannot believe I am doing this because these apples are like my babies. But, I have a good reason.
For years, providing Christmas for our family was difficult. Most of our gift-giving was financed by my exceedingly generous parents. As our family grew, I just did not feel comfortable having my parents pay for their own gifts as well as the gifts we gave to our children. So, I was inspired to sell gourmet apples around the holidays.
One day as I was browsing the internet, inspiration struck and I decided to try to decorate the apples to look like characters. I was no longer satisfied with “gourmet” apples. I wanted DESIGNER gourmet apples.
Soon, orders were pouring in and it was not uncommon for me to sell over 80 apples in a season.
