Apples and Home

From SOUTHBEACHDIET.COM

There is no concrete proof that “An apple a day will keep the doctor away”– although, apples do provide respectable amounts of fiber, some vitamin C, potassium and quercetin – a flavonoid that may help protect against heart disease.

                                                                        

Did you know?  There are over 7,000 varieties of apples available worldwide.  Some are better for baking while others are better for eating.  Try sliced apples with peanut butter – Yummy!

When buying – avoid wrinkled, bruised or soft apples.

Storing apples in the refrigerator will keep them fresh for up to 3 months. But, before eating – always wash skin thoroughly!

This is the time for apples – so much can be done with them – CARMEL APPLE CAKE CARMEL APPLES – A DOUBLE APPLE MOJITO – APPLE PANCAKES – and we can’t forget the All American APPLE PIE. Thanks to THE FOODNETWORK.COM

                                                                         

Now is the perfect time to go apple picking – have fun on the farm and …

enjoy apples and use them to decorate around your home – or – during a get together, try apple dunking – maybe after a double apple mojito!

                       

And don’t forget, if your selling your home, have a pot of apple cider cooking on the stove for a wonderful fragrance or bake some apple muffins– Mmmm!

HAPPY FALL!
