Eat a Red Apple Day ~ December 1st

“An apple a day keeps the doctor away.” Everyone has heard that saying, but is there any truth to it? While nothing will prevent you from ever getting sick, apples have many health benefits and are actually high in antioxidants and fiber as well as a good source of vitamin C. They may even aid in weight loss.

They are delicious, and they are a staple fruit. Did you know they are the second most consumed fruit, with only bananas being eaten more often than apples. There are over 7500 varieties of apples worldwide, and in the United States, the spread of apple trees is credited widely to John Chapman (Johnny Appleseed). They also feature in many fairy tales and stories… Snow White being one of the best known. As a matter of fact, apples figure everything from the Bible to technology, and we even traditionally give them to our teachers as a special treat.

Red apples are sweeter than green apples, and are best for snacking, while green apples are better for cooking as a general rule, but in my honest opinion, both are perfect dipped in caramel.

There are so many ways to celebrate National Red Apple Day, and they are all delicious and fun.
