Annual Apple Taste Test

Home » Happiness » Annual Apple Taste Test

 

Most nights, I announce that we are having fruit for dessert and I’m met with groans and whines.  This time of year, I announce our Annual Apple Taste Test and I actually hear cheers.  It is kind of like a wine tasting.

Apples are highly nutritious with numerous health benefits and so easy to take on the go.  A medium sized apple:

  • contains 4 grams of fiber
  • provides 14% of the Recommended Daily Allowance of Vitamin C and is
  • rich in antioxidants (ORAC of over 5,000).

I found four different varieties of apples to try at The Local Market, but it’s even better if you go to the apple orchard and pick-your-own.  You can also get just as many at the Farmer’s Market.  The kids make signs to label them and put each apple on a different plate.  Next, we made a chart to document the similarities and differences.  We compared the taste, color, hardness, and juiciness.  It is really fun, tastes good.   The kids learn about where food comes from and get excited about fruit!  Try your own taste test and let me know how it goes in the comments.
