Apple season is one of the best seasons all year! I am never worried when I have a pound of apples in my kitchen. I can think of 100 things to do with them in addition to just eating them plain. With the exception of summer, I pretty much eat an apple a day. Do you remember that adage you learned in school, “an apple a day keeps the doctor away.” Well is it really true?
The important thing to keep in mind about apples, is that the skin is the most nutritious part, so be sure to eat it too. I actually love apple skin. When I was younger and my mom was baking with apples, I used to just eat all the skin that she would have thrown out. Did anyone else do that?
As far as a favorite, although I don’t really discriminate… I love a good granny smith. Is it true that the white dots on the skin indicate how tart they are? My sister and I always told my mom to buy the ones with the most dots because we thought they were extra tart.
As for a least favorite… that’s easy…red delicious… those are by far the worst.
