Baked Apples

Baked Apples

There are many varieties and uses of apples.  A medium apple provides 10% of your daily value for fiber and helps fill you up.  Stop by the roadside stand or farmers market to pick up a bunch for snacks, salads, savory dishes or dessert.  Johnathan, Jonagold, Honeycrisp, Braeburn, Gala, Cortland and Golden Delicious varieties hold up well to high temperatures.  Nothing makes the announcement that autumn has arrived than the smell of apples and cinnamon baking in your oven.
