Apple is of the quintessential kind. The Audrey Hepburn of fruit if you will. She has been cultivated, enjoyed and immortalized throughout history, and from her satisfying crunch straight out of a new lunch box to the warm and comforting smell of a baked pie just like Mom used to make wafting in the air, Apple weaves her simple and flavorful magic over us.
While she may often be overlooked during the spring and summer months for flashier fruits like berries, peaches, watermelon and plums, she is always ready to add a sweet crunch and her own personal nutrition to your snacks and meals. Known primarily for her high fiber content with the ability to help lower blood pressure and “bad” cholesterol, Apple would also like you to keep her in mind for her vitamin C. As school and activities start back up this time of year, vitamin C is a great defense against those eager germs passed around homes, classrooms and offices.
