The neighborhood is busy with apple harvest. Pickers are filling bins with juicy, red, Fuji apples. The bins fill the back of semi-trucks who haul them to a nearby packing plant. There's nothing like a tree ripened Fuji apple! Its juicy water-core indicates a sweet and ripe apple. Our friendly neighbors are generous with their apples, so it is a perfect time of year to prepare foods with this delicious fruit!
An Apple-a-Day Pesto
- 1 1/2 cups basil leaves, fresh
- 1 cup parsley, fresh
- 1 cup Fuji apple, cored and quartered
- 1/4 cup almonds
- 3/4 tsp. salt
- 1 Tbsp. apple juice concentrate
- 1 tsp. lemon juice, fresh
- 1 tsp. lemon zest, fresh
- 3 Tbsp. olive oil
Serve with apple slices, crusty slices of bread, and crackers. If you like to double-dip, add a bowl of peanut butter! Enjoy with tea!
