Buying Tips For Fruits

Apple Equivalents:

1 large apple = 2 cups sliced or chopped = 1 1/2 cups finely chopped =1 1/4 cups grated = 3/4 cup sauce.

1 medium apple = 1 1/3 cups sliced or chopped = 1 cup finely chopped = 3/4 cup grated = 1/2 cup sauce.

1 small apple = 3/4 cup sliced or chopped = 3/4 cup finely chopped = 1/2 cup grated = 1/3 cup sauce.

1 pound apples = 4 small apples or 3 medium apples or about 2 large apples

1 (9" or 10") pie = 2-1/2 pounds (4  to 5 large or 6 to 7 medium or 8 to 9 small apples)

Peck = 10-1/2 pounds

Bushel = 42 pounds (yields 20-24 quarts of applesauce)

Apple Tips:

To prevent discoloration of peeled apples, place peeled slices in a pan of cold water to which a pinch of salt has been added (for each whole apple peeled).

When making salads, dip apple slices in fresh lemon juice to prevent slices from turning brown.

Discoloration of aluminum utensils can be removed just as effectively by boiling a number of apple peelings in them as by the old method of boiling a little vinegar in water.

Sprinkling salt on spilled juice from apple pies in a hot oven will cause the juice to burn crisply, making it easier to remove.

To peel apples, dip them quickly in and out of boiling water. The skin will come off much more readily.

Baked Apple-Cinnamon ChipsBaked Cinnamon Apple Chips
Here’s a tasty snack to make with apples. My daughter made these for family treats. My five-year old grandson couldn’t wait to take some to school for snack time. These apple chips are so easy to make and your house will smell delicious as the apples and cinnamon are baking into chips. The low oven temperature allows the moisture of the apples to dry out and the chips to become very crispy. The apple chips taste best if baked until crispy.
