Grab your bushel basket, it's apple season

Whether farmer's market or pick your own, how to enjoy the season's bounty

Fresh apples are really fabulous eating out of hand, as they say in the apple biz. Or, you can toss them into a salad, bake them stuffed with dried fruit, or include them in a crisp or pie.

At the drop of an apple Canadians are up for a good apple festival.

And of course they're healthy, too
Eating an apple a day is great advice; they can help reduce your LDL cholesterol, protect your brain as you age, and reduce the risk of asthma and allergies. Those highly touted antioxidants are in the peel so scrub them well and start munching.
