I like to just eat them.   Cooked apples aren't my thing unless they are in a pie.   I do love apple pie.   Yum!

I like raw apples especially this time of the year straight from the apple orchard.  I am not a fan of apple pie.  I do like applesauce and some apple crisps but not all.

Apple pie! I use the recipe out of the Better Homes and Gardens cookbook. YUMMY! I baked one this weekend.
My girls and DH would say MIL's homemade applesauce. But the wind storm that came through in June blew all the apples off her trees. :smileysad: No applesauce this year.

I do a newsletter for work every month and I just finished October's that will be sent out next week.  The "wellness" portion of it was on apples!

Apples are in season from September through November.  Find some interesting and nutritious facts about apples!

► Two pounds of apples make one 9-inch pie.

► 2,500 varieties of apples are grown in the United States.

► 7,500 varieties of apples are grown throughout the world.

► Apples are fat, sodium, and cholesterol free.

► A medium apple is about 80 calories.

► Apples are a great source of the fiber pectin. One apple has five grams of fiber.

► It takes about 36 apples to create one gallon of apple cider.
