What I'm Lovin'...Honeycrisp Apples!
What’s so special about the Honeycrisp variety? Three words: crispy, juicy, flavor. Consumers love the unique juicy, honey-sweet flavor with the “explosive” crunch. The preferred use for Honeycrisp apples is for eating and salads, but these apples are also good for applesauce and baking. They are also an exceptionally good keeping apple, and can be stored for up to three to four months in the refrigerator.
The health benefits from eating apples are numerous. One medium Honeycrisp apple has 5 grams of fiber and only 80 calories. Because of the amount and type of fiber, an apple will help a person feel full longer, helping him or her to consume fewer calories daily. The pectin in apples may also help lower cholesterol. The flesh and peel are packed with disease-fighting antioxidants and phytochemicals that may protect against breast and lung cancer. These disease-fighting nutrients work best when the peel and flesh are eaten together.
