It's Apple Time!!
Happy Thursday To All!!
- An apple's skin should be shiny, not dull. It is a sign they will be crisp and tasty.
- Apples should be firm and free of bruises and punctures.
- "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)
- Protect cut apples from oxidizing (browning) by squeezing lemon juice over them.
- "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)
- An Apple A Day Keeps The Doctor Away!
- 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.
- “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)
