AN APPLE A DAY (in season) REALLY WILL KEEP THE DOCTOR AWAY!! (She says while munching on a yummy Gala) And, “When is in season?” you ask. Well, obviously (or not so obviously), it’s different for every fruit.
APPLE SEASON begins in SEPTEMBER and, depending on the weather and other factors, stretches all the way to late FEBRUARY/ early MARCH. For two whole seasons, we get to enjoy a multitude of apples: Gala, Golden Delicious, Granny Smith, Fuji, Braeburn, etc…
What do you mean, keep the doctor away?
Apples help to keep the system “regular”. They’re high in FIBER, POTASSIUM, VITAMIN C, etc… In addition to assisting the immune system, apples aid in REGULATING BOWEL MOVEMENTS. That’s right! The fiber makes apples great fruit for EASING CONSTIPATION. On the other hand, properties in apple juice make for a great DIARRHEA REMEDY. Interesting, huh?
BTW, GALA and FUJI are MY FAVS!! Although, I like to mixed either of those with Golden Delicious and Granny Smith when making APPLE PIE = yummmmmy!!!!!!!!!
