An Apple a Day

Apples have so much to offer – delicious, nutritious, versatile, and sooooooo fresh! New York is the second largest producer of apples in the U.S.A., and you will find them featured in stores throughout the month of November. We are dedicated to local, variety and quality – you will also find Washington State apples like Fuji and Gala in stores.

Fun Facts!
Americans love apples, and eat about 16 pounds per person each year!
A medium sized apple contains 80 calories, and five grams of fiber.
Apples are members of the rose family.

Maple Apple Crisp
6 medium Granny Smith apples, or other firm apples, cored, sliced
1 T. lemon juice
2/3 cup PICS maple syrup, divided
1 1/2 cups Gatherer’s granola
1/2 cup PICS chopped walnuts (optional)
1/2 cup PICS brown sugar

1/4 tsp. nutmeg
1/8 tsp. salt

Preheat oven to 375°F.

Spray an 8”x 8” baking pan with nonstick cooking spray. Place sliced apples in pan, sprinkle with lemon juice and drizzle 1/3 cup maple syrup over apples, mixing gently.

In a large mixing bowl, combine granola, walnuts (if using), remaining 1/3 cup maple syrup, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt.  Cut in butter using pastry blender or 2 knives until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
