Apple Shopping Tip

When buying apples, they should be firm, free of bruises, and heavy for their size.

Apple Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
