Cook With Apples

 

Locally-grown apples are finally here! We love to enjoy them in a variety of ways.


Discover the different types of apples

Naturally low in calories, apples are packed with fibre and antioxidants. An apple’s skin is the part of the fruit that’s richest in beneficial nutrients. Depending on the variety, the skin of the apple can be firm, slightly firm, crunchy, sweet or slightly tart. The variety of apple will dictate its colour, shape, and texture.

Our Nutritionist's Tips

According to some studies, people who eat apples regularly are less likely to suffer from diabetes, heart disease and have a smaller waist. Since the skin contains the most beneficial nutrients, try to retain it while preparing different dishes, desserts and sauces.

All the Goodness of Apples

Colourful Applesauce

To add beautiful colour to your applesauce, don't peel the apples. Just core and coarsely chop them and place in a saucepan with a little water. Cook on low heat until apples are tender.

A New Idea For Tasty Snacks

For a delicious, easy-to-carry snack, think dried apples. Core the apples and slice into circles. Sprinkle with lemon juice and place in a very low oven for six to eight hours.

Dessert With A Kick

To add zip to your muffins or cake recipes, replace half the fat with unsweetened applesauce.
