IT'S APPLE TIME!
I love this season! Whether you live where autumn brings lots of changes or only a few, it's still a great time for seasonal fun. So let's jump in and get started.
There are thousands of kinds of apples. However, only the most popular are grown and harvested. Even that changes as new varieties emerge. Today, the top ten are most often listed as the following:
Cox's Orange Pippin
Collect samples of any three then compare.
Do the apples look different?
Also rate it on sweetness with 1 being the least sweet and 4 being the sweetest.
It's estimated each person in the U.S. eats about 50 apples each year. So take a bite to be on your way to eating your fair share!

SNAP IT UP
To bob for apples, fill a large plastic storage tub or child's plastic wading pool nearly full of water. Wash the apples--one for each contestant. Set these afloat. To play each person, in turn, bends over the tub with their hands behind their back. Have someone time each person working to snatch an apple in their teeth. The fastest snatcher wins. Only each person wins a tasty apple snack.
