wild apples

“What is sour in the house, a bracing walk makes sweet.”

That’s from Thoreau’s essay “Wild Apples”. He was writing about the wild apples of New England, whose sharp flavor could only be appreciated while out on a long walk on a blustery late fall day. I’m a big fan of sour apples myself, and today might be perfect for a Thoreau-ish stroll :-)
