Ayurveda enthusiasts champion this beloved fruit at the end of Summer to cleanse and prepare the body for the winter months ahead. Apples come in so many irresistible varieties guaranteed to take your taste-buds through the entire spectrum between sweet and sour.
One of my favorite ways to enjoy apples as the weather becomes cooler is to "stew" them. It's simple and makes the house smell wonderful. Simply peel and cube 3-5 of any apple variety you desire. Place in a sauce pan and add only enough water to cover the apples. Add cinnamon, cardamom, clove--stir and turn on medium high heat. Allow apples to cook until soft and most of the liquid gets absorbed. Enjoy them over oatmeal, quinoa, amaranth or another favorite grain.
