It's Apple Time! Time For Dessert!

This is my 14th Thursday Thirteen!!
It's Apple Time!!
Happy Thursday To All!!

  1. An apple's skin should be shiny, not dull. It is a sign they will be crisp and tasty.
  2. Apples should be firm and free of bruises and punctures.
  3. "I know the look of an apple that is roasting and sizzling on the hearth on a winter's evening, and I know the comfort that comes of eating it hot, along with some sugar and a drench of cream... I know how the nuts taken in conjunction with winter apples, cider, and doughnuts, make old people's tales and old jokes sound fresh and crisp and enchanting."
    Mark Twain (1835-1910)
  4. Protect cut apples from oxidizing (browning) by squeezing lemon juice over them.
  5. "How many apples fell on Newton's head before he took the hint? Nature is always hinting at us. It hints over and over again. And suddenly we take the hint."
    Robert Frost (1874-1963)
  6. An Apple A Day Keeps The Doctor Away!
  7. Research indicates apples lower blood cholesterol, improve bowel function, reduce risk of stroke, prostate cancer, type II diabetes and asthma and "whole-body" health benefits including a potential decreased risk of cancer and heart disease.
  8. “The friendly cow, all red and white,
    I love with all my heart;
    She gives me cream with all her might,
    To eat with apple-tart.”
    Robert Louis Stevenson (1850-1894)
What's YOUR favorite apple dessert?

Join us for the Bread Roundup on Oct. 15, 2008!


  1. Nice TT!! Mmmm I'd say hot apple pie and apple cobbler.

  2. Yay! Great TT! Loved it and learned a few things.

  3. What a great topic for TT!!! Thanks for posting it Joy.

  4. Mmmmmmm, made me hungry for some good ole apple crisp! Yummy!

  5. and the doctor they talking about on your #10 is the Dentist. :)

  6. #13 reminds me of a darling children's book I used to read to my children once upon a time.

    What a fun post!

  7. I love apples and try to live by the "apple a day" theory. Great list! I love the quotes.

  8. I love the apples this time of year! Very Yummy!! Happy TT

  9. I love apples! :) What a great TT.

    My favorite apple dish is either apple pie or apple crisp. I have made both this past month with fresh-picked Michigan apples.

  10. I truly believe that an apple a day keeps the dr away. That's why they say to eat 7-11 fruit/veggie servings a day. Gotta take a trip to the cider mill

  11. Mmm, apple crisp!
    I just made apple butter yesterday. The kids and dh love it!

  12. All I can say is Mmmmm. For my favorite apple dessert...probably Apfel Struedel!

  13. Lots of good apple tips. Thanks for sharing.

  14. We made an apple pie this morning -
    'tis the season!

    And Oh Yes! on your bread project!
    We'll be there and I'll put a post on my blog tomorrow to help spread the word.

  15. Oh now I simply must have some homemade apple crisp.

    Great TT.

  16. I have two favorite apple desserts - first is a delicious homemade apple pie, smothered in whipped cream or with a scoop of vanilla ice cream (or both)!

    And second is a delicious cake I recently tried, Apple Dapple Cake. It's an apple cake with a buttery sweet sauce poured over it and it soaks in and tastes so great!

    Oh, I just love apples! This was a great post. I didn't know that about an apple's skin needing to by shiny. I'll definitely use that information the next time I go buy apples!
