All About Apples

apples chartIt’s almost apple pickin’ season and in some areas they are already becoming available. We have the priviledge of ordering from a bulk foods group and what do you think they are offering already? You guessed it! Peaches.

Well, peaches are there and look delicious and at a $1/pound when you buy 25 lbs. it is so tempting. APPLES however, are also in the selection and are running less than .70 per pound for Golden Supreme and Ginger Gold apples. I wasn’t sure what those specific brands were and did the research and thought I’d share it with you what different apples will do to your recipes and daily attempts at keeping the doctor away.
