There’s something about apples that make them irresistible to everyone from Eve to Snow White. This innocent little fruit is an all-time favorite, especially, if you have the ones from Washington! 1700 apple farmers work year-round to produce the quality fruit that the world has come to know and crave. From pruning trees in the winter, to carefully observing the orchards’ bloom in the spring, to thinning the small fruit during the summer so the larger fruit can thrive, to fall’s handpicked harvest, Washington Apple growers dedicate their lives to ensuring their orchards thrive. You know the old adage: “An apple a day keeps the doctor away” - Well, that’s actually some sound advice! Eating one large apple provides 20% of the recommended daily value of dietary fiber, 8% of the antioxidant Vitamin C, and 7% of your day’s potassium, all for only 130 calories… with no fat, no sodium, and no cholesterol! Well, besides the obvious health benefits, Washington Apples has also created some ridiculously delicious recipes. We have listed down our favourite ones for you to try:
