Apples are one of the most popular fruits in the United States. These healthy grab & go snacks are usually eaten raw, but they can be baked, dried, canned, pickled and juiced.
Look for: Ripe apples are great for immediate use, under-ripe apples if you plan to store them.
Store: In the crisper drawer of the fridge for up to two weeks.
When storing cake, brownies or soft cookies, drop a few apple wedges into their container to keep the desserts moist for longer.
Apple seeds contain cyanide which is harmful in large doses. To be affected, however, one needs to eat at least 18 apple cores.
The reason that apples float is because they consist of 25% air.
Use Empire, Gala, and Fuji, and Red Delicious in salads and to eat fresh.
Granny Smith and Golden Delicious are great to freeze, bake and make applesauce or apple pies.
