The Great Wednesday Compare #3- Apples VERSUS Oranges

Last week's Franz Kafka versus Laura Ingalls Wilder debate is still going on until April 1st. So, if you haven't voted yet, head there to do so. But to tide you over until then, feel free to vote on a real apples versus oranges contest. (Don't worry, my brain and I will be back from vacation soon!)

Remember, vote simply by adding your comment below, base it on whatever merit you choose, voting does not end until Tuesday at 11:59 p.m. (April 1st, 2009), and if you want your fruit to get more votes, feel free to promote them here or on your blog!

Who's better?

Although, if it is the Granny Smith apple vs. an orange, then I choose oranges, because Granny Smith Apples are too tart.

However, if it is a Pink Lady apple vs. an orange, then apples win, hands down.

Yes, I'm sure now.

Apples! Can you make a pie out of oranges - No!

* Corey: Did you put John up to this? *

Hmm, lets see...
Oranges beat apples for eating.
Apples beat oranges for cooking.
Orange juice beats apple juice for vitamin C content but oh, that apple cider...

Darn it! My first Wednesday Compare and I still can't decide and I thought this one would be easy!

Hi John,
I'll go with Apples. I also finished another book for the 2nd Canadian Reading Challenge. "Detective" by Arthur Hailey. You can see my review here: Have a great day!!

No, oranges.

Forget it. I'm going with grapes.

Some say the orange is best,
Some say the apple.
From what I've tasted of juice,
I hold with those who say orange.
But if I were baking a pie,
I think I know enough of apples
To say that for baking, apples
Are also great,
And would suffice.

Oranges. Vitamin C is sooo important in late winter. In the middle of summer, apples may win. Especially if they're still dangling from a tree. Crab apples, however, would beat Oranges any day.

Oranges! I think I am addicted to those massive sweet winter ones.

What an impossible choice! There are over a thousand varieties of apples to choose from. I love them raw but not cooked. And you can make an orange pie. I brought a recipe home from Florida once and made them, they are delicious. Apples for crunching, oranges for juice, or the scent, or when you're sick. Can't decide, it's too much like comparing...apples and oranges.

Seeing as I just read a great food book with a long and luscious description of the wild apple orchards of Kazakhstan, I'll go with apples. (I hope it doesn't hurt any citrusy feelings out there...)
