Apples!

So I was on Pinterest the other day (I'm having good luck with Pinterest these days!) and I came across this:

http://www.letstalkfitness.com/raw-apple-snack

It's a recipe for citrus apples. Apples are pretty tasty on their own, I didn't really think they needed an upgrade, but I had some apples I needed to use up, so I tried it this morning. I didn't have an orange or a lemon, but I did have orange juice (not from concentrate) and some lemon juice in my fridge, so I cut up an apple into thin slices, poured some orange juice and lemon juice on them and let it sit. It said to let it sit for at 20 minutes. I think I managed to wait for about two before I tried the first one. :)

Oh. My. Goodness. It was crunchy citrus heaven! I immediately cut up another apple and now I have two of them marinating in my fridge. It will make an awesome afternoon snack for the boys if there are any left when they get home! :)

I see many trips to the store for more apples in my future...

So glad you like my apple recipe - you have made my day! I do agree that it would be great for kids - somehow I think the cutup apple will work better than a whole apple in a lunchbox.

I told you that you would be addicted! :)

Thanks again. -- Allen

Thanks for stopping by my blog Allen! And thanks so much for the great idea! My three year old gobbled the apples up like they were going out of style. :) I'm going to the store for more apples this evening so my big kids can try it!

Sounds so good! I wish that apples did not make me deathly ill with just a nibble. But I need to try this with the kiddos!
