The apple tree, which originally came from Eastern Europe and south-western Asia, has spread to most temperate regions of the world. Over the centuries, many hybrids have been developed. Apple is just as versatile as any other fruit or vegetable. Apples are juicy and sweet and they taste amazing when they are made into a dessert or as a savoury dish. Did you know apples are good for you? They help lower blood fats, an excellent source of dietary fibre and are considered one of the world’s healthiest foods! They have high levels of antioxidants that are good for your skin. Apples belong to the Rose family of plants and are joined in that family by a wide range of very popular foods, including apricots, plums, cherries, peaches, pears, raspberries, and almonds. Come fall and there’s a surplus of these delicious fruits. Make the most of the apple season by turning them into pickles, preserves, jams and even chips!
