What is it about the apple? I love apples but sometimes I think it's got to be one of the most under rated fruits out there. This pretty little globe of fruit comes in so many different varieties, each one having it's own unique taste and "talent". Granny smiths are great when cooking, especially with pork or chicken. Mixing sweet Golden Delicious, Fuji, Pink Lady or Macintosh with a more tart Pippin or Granny Smith and tossing them into your salads adds a nice punch and crunch! Apples are just cute and most keep well, plus scientific studies have shown that eating apples on a regular basis can improve overall health. I guess there really is something in that old saying "An apple a day, keeps the doctor away!", AND did you know that apples contain no fat, no sodium and no cholesterol? Wahoo! Good for you and satisfies that sweet craving at the same time.
I just love apples. Not that you could guess by any means (lol). I'm hoping that this season I'll be able to get my young ones up to an apple orchard where we can pick our own. Being suburbanites we'll need to drive out of the city to find the orchard, but I know it will make for a great day trip as well as a family memory.
So, have you had your apple today?
