All About Apples

Everyone knows that "an apple a day keeps the doctor away." That's because apples are rich in vitamins A, B1, B2 and C. They also contain numerous minerals, such as calcium, phosphorous, magnesium and potassium.
Although apples are available year-round, they each have their own peak season. Select apples that are firm and have a smooth, unblemished skin that is free from bruises.
Store unwashed apples in the refrigerator away from other vegetables with strong aromas. Apples can be refrigerated for up to 6 weeks.
One pound (about 3 medium apples) yields 2-3/4 cups sliced.
