There's an Apple for That

Is there any easier way to eat healthy than tucking a crisp, juicy apple into your pocket before you leave the house each day? Smit Orchards and R&L Farms are bringing Gala, Fuji, and Pink Lady and more apples to your favorite farmers' markets this week. Keep a bowlful in your kitchen for a fresh solution to the snacking dilemma, or mix up this tasty slaw.

CARROT APPLE SLAW This is an easy dish to make, and it makes a great side or snack. Grab a couple firm apples, a small bunch of carrots from Suzie's Farm, a half cup each of raisins from Smit Orchards and Hopkins AG almonds. Peel and grate the carrots, grate the apples and crush the almonds roughly. Mix all the ingredients together with two tablespoons each of fresh lemon juice and local honey. Got it? Good.
