Fall brings on some of my favorite fruits and vegetables: winter squash, Brussels sprouts, figs, and apples. What produce do you look forward to most in the fall? My friends at Sprouts Farmers Market are making the most of the season’s bounty of apples with an “Apple-anche” in the stores’ Produce Department. Pink Lady, Honeycrisp, Granny Smith, Gala, Fuji, Golden Delicious and so many more delicious fall apples to enjoy!
Honeycrisp apples have a great crunch and are mildly sweet. I love keeping them on hand for snacking but they also work well in baked goods. They were also the perfect match for the salty prosciutto in this recipe! Fun food fact: the Honeycrisp apple originated in Minnesota.
Apples provide the most nutritional value when left unpeeled since most of the nutrients are found in the skin. An apple is a good source of fiber and vitamin C, helping to keep the doctor away if eaten once a day!
How to Store Apples
Like most fruits, apples left out on the counter will ripen faster than if they are stored in the refrigerator. If storing apples in the fridge, be sure to keep them in a plastic bag. Apples give off a natural gas called ethylene which can cause other fruits to ripen faster. Ever place an apple next to unripe, green bananas and find that the very next day, the bananas are ripened? That’s the ethylene gas at work!
Okay, let’s talk about these Prosciutto Wrapped Apple Bites!
To assemble, simply place a couple arugula leaves on top of an apple slice and add a piece of white cheddar cheese…..
…then wrap it in a delicious piece of prosciutto!
