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
Asian Coleslaw
Category: Salads
Description: Cabbage is chock full of nutrients including vitamin C and indoles, important cancer-fighting compounds. In addition, red cabbage also contains anthocyanins, the purple pigment with strong antioxidant activity commonly found in blueberries. In the winter months, cabbage is an abundant nutritional resource when other fresh produce is either expensive or unavailable. This recipe calls for a lot of salt, but it is used in this dish to soften the cabbage. Then it is thoroughly rinsed off so the recipe doesn't provide too much sodium. This coleslaw is colorful and makes a delightful accompaniment to any meat, fish or vegetarian main dish. The garnish of minced scallions and toasted sesame seeds brings out the flavor of the slaw and adds additional crunch.
