Fall is here and in Michigan, where I live, the apples are being picked and made into many healthy autumn recipes.
The scoop: The apple is one of Nature’s great nutritional gifts. Eaten with the skin, apples are an excellent source of fiber. They’re also low in calories, and are fat-, cholesterol- and sodium-free.
Look for: Choose apples that are colorful and firm to the touch, with smooth skins and no bruising.
To store: Store apples in a plastic bag in the refrigerator for as long as two weeks. Wash apples before eating and to prevent sliced apples from turning brown, dip them in a mixture of water and lemon juice.
