Apples. . .FREEBIE!

This is how it went this morning. . .

Little Man (my 4 year old, eating a bag of apple slices in the back seat): "Mom, if you see a tree with apples on it, you should eat them."

Mom: "Ok, I like apples."

Little Man: "Because if you eat the apples God will make some more."

How great and wonderful to think about life in such simplistic terms. I do worry about natural resources though. Humans are going through them at quite the rapid rate. I want to make sure there are enough resources for my children, grandchildren and so on. That is one of the reasons I started this project.

So, in honor of APPLES and shopping for them, leave a comment and tell me your favorite way to eat an apple and you will be entered to win TWO PRODUCE BAGS to put your apples in at the grocery store. You can even leave a YUMMY apple recipe if you so desire!

People who have already won produce bags will not be eligible to win. Bagette Dad keeps track of this. Your comments are still welcome though!

The last day to leave a comment to win this FREEBIE will be midnight CST, January 31, 2009. Remember to leave your EMAIL address spelling out AT and DOT so you don't get spam.

Happy apple eating and have a great weekend. My favorite kinds of apples are Winesap and Honeycrisp. Teresa

First way, Baked Apples!

I cut off the top, core the apple then stick some brown sugar and cinnamon in the middle of it with a bit of butter on top. Then I put it in the over for 10 minutes.

Second way, is cutting one up and dipping it in peanut butter.

Carla--

My dad looked up your email. Yes, you won produce bags last time but he tried to email you 3 times and you never answered. You might want to check your spam folder to see if it is blocking emails from David Van Hatten.

Some of my fondest memories of my grandma are when we made homemade applesauce for my infant daughter. Apples are awesome! kaylagalloway at gmail dot com.

I love apples and caramel. Cut up a granny smith, dip it in the caramel dip. Yum, yum yum!

I love to eat Braeburns just to eat them.

I make apple bread and apple sauce with apples.

For my sweet tooth:
apple crisp with vanilla ice cream (haven't home made it yet. next fall after a trip to the local orchard where i'll pick my own)

For my healthy tooth:
spinach salad with various yummy vegetables, almonds or candied walnuts, and fuji or gala apples served with balsamic vinegrette

Your big fan,

In your Upcoming Green Bag Lady Events link the date says March 19 but after you click it, the date on the page says April 19. Just thought I'd bring it to your attention :) Are you going to be there??

I use apples to satisfy my sweet tooth. I keep a bowl full of freshly-washed apples on my kitchen counter, so when I have a hankering for something sweet, I just grab an apple and crunch away. Not only do I get something sweet, but lots of fiber to boot.

My favorite apples are Pink Ladies, which my husband, for some reason, keeps calling Ladyfingers, as in "Did you get some Ladyfingers at the store today?"

My dogs love apples, too, and happily eat the cores, so no leftovers!

My favorite way to eat apples is to dip them in caramel. They can be a caramel apple on a stick or just dipping slices in warm caramel, doesn't matter to me!

You know I really like honey crisp too. But yellow apples are the best. I make this really good apple dip which really, you just give some pizazz to PB but it tastes only a little bit like PB.................
I think the idea of the bags is fabulous! Keep it up!

My two daughters love apples, and we'd love to have fabric bags instead of plastic ones to put apples and other fruits in!

In all honesty, I am not an apple person, but the rest of my family members certainly are! I love to make homemade apple crisp for them. Also, I work at a preschool, and my kiddos there love to spread apple slices with marshmallow fluff and then stick raisins on. It sounds disgusting to me, but apparently the sweet, sticky, and tart flavors combined are quite yummy for them!

You have such a neat site here, Green Bag Lady! I stumbled across it from another blog and am really enjoying my stay here. Keep up the wonderful work!

Apple is my favorite fruit. I've kept my one-apple-a-day routine for many years. My favorite way is just to eat it raw and with skin. Thanks for the giveaway!

My favorite for cooking is Courtland. They make great pie. My mother used to make an apple cake (apple slices, dotted with butter and cinnamon, smothered in a dense yellow cake batter and baked until golden brown, mmmm), but she didn't pass the recipe on to me. I can almost delude myself into believing Red Delicious slices dipped in Jif Extra Crunchy are as good as a carnival vendor's caramel apple.

CKS POP Girls here again~~~~~~~
Here is the recipe for my apple dip. Heat a bowl of PB up for about 15 sec. so it will soften, mix in some yogurt and a few pinches of cinnamon. Yum!!!
~~~~Enjoy!!!
