It’s apple season! One of my favorite times of year.
If you like them as much as I do know this: Conventionally grown apples tend to be sprayed with pesticides approximately 24 times a year. 24 times! That’s a lot of poison. Apples are a tough crop, bugs love them.
When minimal spraying is done the apples are treated about 12 times a year which is still an awful lot to me. Get your apples organic or from a farmer that has practices you agree with. Try out some of the heirloom varieties, they’re much tastier and more complex than a typical Red Delicious or Granny Smith.
I’ve been waiting all year for apple season, I can feel a crumble being made in my future. Click here if you’d like my recipe, it’s a hit.
Apples help make you beautiful, take advantage of the season.
