Eat a Red Apple Day

1 December

The stores are still bursting with apples, fresh from the harvest.

A few of the varieties you will see year round, because they either store well or are brought in from other parts of the world throughout the year. Other varieties, though, won't store long even in commercial storage, so time is running out to have one of them this season.

In case you're tempted to bend the rules a bit and have several Red Apples -- say, in an apple pie -- the idea of the day is probably to eat a fresh apple out of hand, because fresh-eating apples tend to store less well than cooking apples.

Make it a point today to treat yourself to a Red Apple that you don't see year round, or to introduce yourself to a new one that you haven't met before.
