AN APPLE A DAY…
“An apple a day keeps the doctor away.”
Apples truly are the ´super fruit´ for everyone. The health benefits of apples and apple products were first recorded as early as medieval times, giving rise to the old English saying “Ate an apfel avore gwain to bed Makes the doctor beg his bread” and its modern day variation, “An apple a day keeps the doctor away.” Apples are extremely rich in important antioxidants, flavanoids, and dietary fiber.
The phytonutrients and antioxidants in apples may help reduce the risk of developing cancer, hypertension, diabetes, and heart disease.
Apple chutney made of an old Starking variety from Southern Peloponnese, curry, vinegar and sultanina raisins is the best companion for white meet, pork and cheese.
