This is a still life study with an antique Chinese Soy Sauce Jug and Fortune Apples. What in the world is a Fortune Apple? I’ll explain in a minute but I find it interesting that soy sauce is used in Chinese food and usually comes with a cookie that has a fortune in it (which btw, so does your painting, see the notes on the COA). Now about the Fortune Apple…it’s a high-quality long-keeping apple, that at first glance seems to be a good old heritage variety. But it’s actually a modern introduction, bred in New York State and soon after its introduction, relegated to obscurity by the popularity of one of its parents: Empire. The Fortune tree grows well, but tends to produce fruit only in alternate years. The flavor of the fruit is what wins people over; it’s sweet and tart simultaneously, combined with a distinct spiciness. The apples are large and Fortune does well both with fresh eating and in baking.
