Nothing compares to crisp and juicy in-season apples, and now is the perfect time to make the most of them in both sweet and savory dishes.
Pick Like A Pro
When shopping, avoid apples with nicks, bruises, or soft spots and seek out fruit that’s firm and heavy for its size. Make sure the skin is smooth and shiny, as dull skin is often a sign that apples are lacking in taste and texture.
Apples lose their crispness at room temperature, so be sure to store them in the refrigerator, where they’ll keep for up to three weeks. Separate soft or bruised apples, which can cause perfectly good ones to soften more quickly.
Know The Benefits
Apples are more than just a low-calorie snack. They’re also packed with fiber, which has been shown to reduce the risk of some cancers, as well as heart disease. Plus, fiber keeps tummies feeling full, so you’re less apt to reach for sugary treats.
Apples Love Lemons
A squeeze of lemon juice helps keep cut-up apples from browning.
