My favorite Apple, Honeycrisp……….

The health benefits from eating apples are numerous. One medium Honeycrisp apple has 5 grams of fiber and only 80 calories. Because of the amount and type of fiber, an apple will help a person feel full longer, helping him or her to consume fewer calories daily. The pectin in apples may also help lower cholesterol. And they’re delicious!

Sweet and Savory Apple Recipes
Apples are a super-versatile, budget-friendly, and fiber-packed fruit. We’ve included our favorite low-carb apple dessert recipes (think pies, crisps, and cobblers) and a few apple-infused side- and main-dish recipes, too. Best of all, these yummy apple dishes have been developed with a diabetic diet in mind.

Amazing Apple Tart
Juicy baked apples, a tender biscuitlike crust, and a sweet and spicy sauce add up to this diabetes-friendly dessert. That is truly amazing!…..

Apple-Glazed Chicken with Spinach
A drizzling of lemon-accented apple glaze lightly sweetens the braised spinach-topped chicken in this delightful dish…..

Cherry-Apple Cobbler
Make sure the fruit filling is hot when you spoon the biscuit batter over it. That way, the bottom of the “cobbled biscuit” will be thoroughly cooked…..

When making Apple Pie….

I found these helpful hints on the Honest Cooking website (http://honestcooking.com/)…….

Whether stuffed or baked for a side dish or a dessert or chopped up and hidden under a layer of dough or crumble topping, these apples hold their shape during cooking.

* Rome apples are very large with green-speckled red skin. This variety makes an impressive dessert when baked whole.

* Extra tart with thick, “apple green” skin, Granny Smiths are the perfect opposite to the sweeter baking apples, like Golden Delicious, for balanced pies and crisps.

* Braeburn apples are very crisp, sweet and tangy, making them great for baking or eating raw.

* Golden Delicious are excellent all-purpose apples that are particularly good in pies and crisps.

* Jonagold apples have a honeyed sweetness and crisp yellow flesh. This variety holds its shape during baking or sautéing.

Sliced Apples………

I use this hint all the time; To prevent sliced apples from browning, lightly squeeze lemon or lime juice on the pieces.

An apple a day……….

If you need to store a cake more than a day or two, put half an apple in the container. The apple will provide just enough moisture to keep the cake from drying out too soon.
