Featured Fruit - APPLES

Healthy Serving Ideas

Freeze 100% apple juice in an ice tray or in a paper cup with a popsicle stick.

Use unsweetened applesauce to make lower fat baked goods.  Replace shortening or oils in baking with an equal amount of applesauce plus one-third of the oil it called for in the recipe.



Produce Tips

Look for apples that are firm and do not have bruises or soft spots.

Store apples at room temperature for up to one week.  Or, refrigerate apples for up to three months.  Do not refrigerate apples in closed bags.

To keep apples from browning, prepare fresh apple dishes just before serving. Or, pour 100% apple juice over fresh apple slices.
