When I think of fall, I think of apples. Meaning, I think about my family’s annual tradition to go to Ritter’s. Ritter’s is a cider mill only open in the fall, and they have a corn maze and a hay bale tunnel for kids. Ritter’s sells the most delicious fresh apple cider, apples from an orchard, and donuts. The crisp autumn weather is perfect for apples, sweet or crunchy. It’s a healthy snack and a tasty one. Like the saying goes, an apple a day keeps the doctor away. Here’s five ways to eat apples.
Cider is one of the best drinks ever created. Cider is delicious, especially if it’s from Ritter’s. Cider is refreshing, and good hot or cold.
- Whole Apple
Taking a bite out of a plain apple tastes great, too! There are a bunch of varieties of apples: Red Delicious, Granny Smith, Gala, Ambrosia, Fuji, McIntosh, etc. Each has a different taste, so you’ll find one to be pleased with!
- Apple Slices with Peanut Butter
I tend to get apple slices with my meal at Hawk’s Nest on campus. An apple cut up or prepackaged as slices are great for on the go, and adding peanut butter to dip them into is sure to make you say, “yum”.
- Apple Pie
Some kinds of apples are just right for baking. A warm apple pie is a staple for your Thanksgiving feast in fall.
- Caramel Apple
A caramel apple on a stick can be a typical fair food, but it is sweet and a fun snack nevertheless.
