An apple a day


~ Apples :the Next Superfruit ~
( A preview to Washington Apples)

How many times have we heard the old Welsh saying-
"An apple a day keeps the doctor away" truly the number
would be uncountable for most of us .


Flowery Apple Salad

Slices of Red Delicious Apple sandwiched with fresh green spinach
& topped with some vanilla honey , fresh lime juice & raisins .


Apples are one of the most relished fruit in our diets today. The
disease fighting profile of apples provides a multitude of health
benefits right from teeth, gum & bone protection to reducing
one's risk for age related cancers , heart disease and cognitive
illness. Owing to their versatile flavors Apples are great for
salads, baking , cooking, snacking or eating right out of
hand. To get the full nutritional benefits associated with
apples at least one should be eaten every day.......


Washington Apples - No other Apple comes so close


Washington Apples are known worldwide for their wonderful
taste & crispness . Few days back the company called out for
a media & food bloggers meet at The Oberoi for an exclusive
display and tasting session of the seven varieties of the
Washington Apples for the first time in India with
Ms Rebecca Baerveldt Lyons from the Washington
Apples Commission.

The date of the event coincided with my daughter's annual
function coz of which I was unable to make it ,but the Washington
Apple Commission India office was kind enough to send me
all the information on the varieties & usage along with a
gift box of the samples .

The colorful varieties of apples set my creative juices a fire ... the crisp
& juicy divinities were perfect to be relished as snack or turn
into a cool summer salad . Their mellow flavors & juicy inner flesh
could not resist me from some healthy baking too ......


Apple Muffins

Apple muffins ( used Granny Smith & Fuji for baking) topped
with Red delicious, Granny Smith & Golden delicious
decorations.


Major Varieties

The mild, aromatic n distinctive flavors of each of the varieties
made it difficult for us to choose the favorite , each of the
seven pampered our taste buds unanimously .


I bet you'l have to pick up some wonderful Washington Apple
to know how the juicy Red Delicious, Tangy Granny Smith,
Crisp Galas, Aromatic Braeburn, blushing Cripps pink,
tender Golden Delicious & sweet Fujis taste like ......
The crunchy flavor of these tasteful divinities will leave you
craving for some more of tangy juicy healthy & above all a
guilt free snack.

  16. Ah, love to see that my home state is getting around!! I once read that WA states exports the best apples and leaves us with the less desirable ones. Are apples popular in India? Do they grow there? I don't remember seeing them when I visited (but that was over 10 years ago, I may have forgotten.)
