Print Friendly 

Description:
The proverb "An apple a day keeps the doctor away.", addressing the health effects of the fruit, dates from 19th century Wales. Well here is a way to keep the kids eating this amazing fruits.
Research suggests that apples may reduce the risk of colon cancer, prostate cancer and lung cancer. Compared to many other fruits and vegetables, apples contain relatively low amounts of vitamin C, but are a rich source of other antioxidant compounds. The fiber content, while less than in most other fruits, helps regulate bowel movements and may thus reduce the risk of colon cancer.


Ingredients:
5 medium apples
5 wooden craft sticks
3/4 cup chopped walnuts or pecans
1 package (14 ounces) caramels, unwrapped
1 tablespoon water


Directions:
Line baking sheet with parchment or wax paper; set aside.
Wash and dry apples; insert wooden sticks into stem ends. Place nuts in shallow dish. Combine caramels and water in small saucepan.
Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until caramels are melted. Dip apples, 1 at a time, into caramel mixture, turning to cover completely. Remove excess caramel mixture by scraping apple bottoms across rim of saucepan. Roll bottom half of apples in walnuts. Place on prepared baking sheet. Refrigerate at least 15 minutes. You can also drizzle some melted chocolate decoratively over apples.
Refrigerate 10 minutes or until chocolate is firm.
Wrap apples individually; store in refrigerator.

Recipe
Crispy Baked Asian Blackberry Chicken Wings
Category: Main Meals
Description: There are few occasions when I’d argue that “baked” rules over “deep-fried.” But believe it or not, a piping hot oven—and not a vat of bubbling oil—is the secret to the crispiest, crackliest chicken wings. And with just five ingredients and 50 minutes, you’ll be licking your fingers clean for every last taste of these Crispy Baked Asian Chicken Wings. Sound too good to be true?
I consider myself a bit of a wing connoisseur. Buffalo, chipotle, teriyaki, barbecue—you name it, I’ve winged it. While it’s hard to beat basic butter and hot sauce, I’ve turned to my favorite hoisin and blackberry jam glaze (of mini-meatball fame) to add a sweet and tangy twist to each crunchy bite. I guarantee these wings will fly off the plate. (You had to know that was coming…)

Much like spinach, raisins, apples, plums and grapes, blackberries are rich in bioflavonoids and Vitamin C, but other nutritional benefits include a very low sodium count and having only 62 calories to a cup. The dark blue colour ensures blackberries have one of the highest antioxidant levels of all fruits.

In Canada, blackberries are seasonal fruits and the availability of a fresh batch depends on whether you live in the North or the South. They make great jams.
