Bexley Farmers Market: September 4

Apple season is here, and we're not mad about it!

Apple season has arrived! And as they say, "An apple a day, keeps the doctor away."


But why do they say that?


Researchers from Cornell's Food Science and Toxicology Department in Ithaca, N.Y. suggest that, "...a combination of plant chemicals, collectively known as phytochemicals, found mainly in the skin of apples, provide the bulk of the fruit's anticancer and antioxidant properties. The cooperative activity of these phytochemicals, they argue, has health benefits that are superior to those found in single compounds like vitamin C, vitamin E, and beta-carotene, which have been widely studied for their antioxidant activities."


Read more about their research in An Apple a Day May Really Keep the Doctor Away.


In the meantime, take notes from pickyourown.org on storage tips and techniques in Apples: How to Store Apples for the Winter at Home.


Want the next best thing to the whole fruit? Here are a few ideas for preserving apples for year long enjoyment from Spruce Eats, How to Store Apples for Winter.
