Thanks everyone.

Charlie - you live in my general neighborhood. Where can I buy Northern Spies? (reply off list if you like.) I see a few of them for one week at one market, and wonder if anyone sells them in more quantity.

Stephen, I will have to try a multi-variety pie with an eye towards slices in sauce, as you suggest. Perhaps Spy and Macintosh.

Of the other suggested apples, I can buy a few Goldrush or Newton Pippin (like Northern Spy), Jonagold, Stayman Winesap, and of course Macoun, which is very popular around here and is in the supermarket in season. I find Macoun cooks similarly to McIntosh. (Maybe I overcook it?)

I've never seen Suncrisp or Cox's Orange pippin for sale locally. Or a Prairie Spy. Is that a really different apple or just a sport of N Spy, do you think?

Thanks again. I will think of you in pie season. :)
