One of our favorite family past times to do this Fall has been to go apple picking. So Fun! I never realized what a difference there is between an apple that has not been treated fresh from the tree and that which you buy at the grocery store…even the organic ones. I am not a huge apple fan….however they have become my fave snack, as a result of our apple picking! My new faves are Winesaps and Mutsu, which I never even knew existed, it is a cross between a Granny Smith and a Golden delicious…nice and crispy with a little tartness…YUMMO!!
We go every couple of weeks and pick a 20 pound bag. I make apple pies and crisps and then leave the rest for snacking.
Apples are a great source in clearing cholesterol from your body, by the way.
Cholesterol only attaches itself to soluble fiber and apples are soluble fiber so munch away!!
