Apples are ripe for the picking, eating and enjoying!

Fall is just around the corner, and we are starting to think about some of our favorite apples. We've done a little research, thanks to the Farmer's Almanac. They suggest 11 varieties are ready to be enjoyed in the United States, your area, or found at your local grocery store.  Apples are amazing additions to salads, desserts, or savory dishes to be enjoyed all of the leaf turning season. 

Epicurious says, "apples are versatile for cooking on the grill, in the oven-baked goodies, or even a delicious layering ingredient for a grilled cheese sandwich." We hope the proverb, " an Apple a day keeps the doctor away, "still applies as we pick, cook, and enjoy our apples. We suggested planning a trip to the local apple orchard for some culinary exercise and fresh outdoor air.  Apples seem particularly good at fending off various diseases, including cardiovascular disease and cancer. 

Crunch into the season, Silvers!
