After searching out the apples and making the rounds, we headed out with a bag of apples, sack of peppers, acorn squash, and some tasty canned goods - pumpkin butter, apple butter, blueberry jam. Yum! I love food.
In the interest of education, I present to you some apple facts:
- Apples are a member of the rose family.
- Apples ripen six to ten times faster at room temperature than if they were refrigerated.
- Fresh apples float because 25% of their volume is air.
- The crabapple is the only apple native to North America.
Fascinating, I know! So I came home with these...
