Images of flawless apples seem to be an iconic representation of the fall season. They illustrate the ushering in of colder weather, the new school year, and the changing season.
Many years ago--more than 30!--I had a boyfriend. Who was a vegetarian. We ended as friends. Years later, I asked him what he learned from me, and h...
Most students take a few nibbles and push them aside. Who could blame them?
The old saying of "one rotten apple wrecks the bunch" is true. Be careful not to put any bruised apples in the bag, as they rot the fastest, and take the others down with them. This is why as you pick the apples, its fairly important to place them in the bag gently.
Cooking tasty and healthy meals from scratch is easy and can be super-quick if you're set up and ready to go. The key to success is having your kitchen stocked to rock.
