General information
Storage Tip: Apples stay fresher if they are kept cold so store them in the fridge. Apples give off ethylene gas, which causes produce near them to ripen too quickly so put them in a plastic bag. Apples cause carrots to go soft so keep your carrots and apples well separated.

Preparation Tip: To keep cut apples from browning, brush with lemon or lime juice, or drop in acidified water (3 tbsp. of lemon juice in 1 quart of water)

Did you know... The apple tree is the most heavily cultivated in the world. The Macintosh is the most popular apple. There are over 7000 varieties of apples.

Culinary Compatibility: Apples are great to add to turkey stuffing or even a stir fry. Applesauce goes well with pork. Apples can be used as a substitute for sugar when cooking (e.g. use apples instead of sugar when making cranberry sauce)

Health Information: An apple a day really does keep the doctor away. Well, at least cancer doctors and heart surgeons. The pectin in apples reduces cholesterol and the quercitin (a flavinoid) reduces the risk of cancer. The boron in apples is thought to help make menopause easier and reduce calcium loss.
