My public school teacher Mrs. Sanderson used to eat the entire apple, seeds, blossom end and all. It always fascinated me to watch her crunch through everything. Leaving nothing, just like a rabbit nibbling an entire carrot, top and all. I learned quite a few things from her, but I still toss out apple cores and stems.
Next time you’re at a market or produce section of a supermarket pick up a few McIntosh apples. You’ll see them in stores between mid-September to May. When you crunch into the white juicy flesh think, ponder this. The McIntosh originated as a chance seedling by John McIntosh of Dundela, Ontario.Every McIntosh tree and apple in the world is a descendent of the original McIntosh tree. The McIntosh apple represents approximately 25 per cent of Ontario’s total acreage.
Red peppers are good for you. This is a good example of an understatement. They are extremely good for you and oh so good when they’re roasted. I met a guy once who said that he ate an entire sweet red pepper every morning. How monotonous.
I just made a spectacular open faced sandwich on bread that had chewy whole grains nestled here and there. I topped the bread with a glistening thin layer of mayo and then skinny slices of feta cheese. It went like this. One piece of cheese for the cook and one for the sandwich.
Then I added two generous pieces of roasted red pepper. Mine came out of a jar. On top of that went sliced onions, thinly sliced cucumbers, a few rings of hot peppers and a kalamata olive as a garnish. Harry, my husband loves this sandwich too, so we ate the same things for lunch three days in a row. More than three days and it might have become monotonous.
