Apples are high in vitamin A, C and various B vitamins and contain a compound called quercetin, which may have anti-inflammatory, anti-viral, anti-cancer, and anti-depressant effects. They even help prevent tooth decay and cavities. We have all heard the quote, “an apple a day keeps the doctor away”!
Purchasing, Storing and Serving
When selecting an apple, be sure it is firm without any soft spots. The more vibrant the colors are, the more likely it is to be a flavorful apple- depending on variety, of course.
Apples are the most popular fruit in the USA for good reason! They are most often enjoyed raw, maybe with nut butter or caramel. But perhaps the favorite way to eat apples, is in pie form- and no surprise here, but America’s favorite pie is apple pie!
