My Favorite Fruit


My Favorite Fruit Essay, Research Paper

The fruit I am reporting on is the apple. The apple is classified as a Pome. Pomes are fruits that have a core, and belong to the rose family Rosaceae. Their Genus is Malus, and there are 25 existing species of Apples.

Apples are available all year round. They are mostly grown in the northern Temperate Zone in both hemispheres. The apples that are harvested in the summer are too tart to eat and are used for cooking. They don t store well, so must be consumed right after they are harvested. Apples that are harvested in fall are great for eating. The two best varieties are the Jonathan and the Grimes Apple. These apples are grown in a temperate climate.

Apples can be purchased fresh, canned, dried, or frozen. Fresh apples make excellent snacks and their skins can also be used to decorate meals. Canned apples are usually used to make pies, cobblers, or desserts. Dried apples are great for snacks. Frozen apples are used the same way as canned apples. Apples can be eaten raw, baked, roasted, stewed, or boiled. It can also be made into jellies, tarts, pies, puddings, and sauces. Here are 2 recipes made from apples:

Apple sauce cake

- 2 12 cups all purpose cake flour

- 2 cups sugar

- 1 12 teaspoons baking soda

- 1 12 teaspoons salt

- 1 14 teaspoons baking powder

- 34 teaspoon ground cinnamon

- 12 teaspoon dried cloves

- 1 12 cups of apple sauce

- 12 cup water

- 2 eggs

- 1 cup raisins

- 1 12 cup chopped walnuts

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour oblong pan, 13*9*2 inches, beat all ingredients in large mixer bowl on low speed for 30 seconds, then on high speed for 3 minutes, pour into pan. Bake until wooden pick inserted in center comes outer clean in center or for 50 to 55 minutes, then let cool.

Apple Crisp

- 4 cups sliced tart apples

- 23 cup packed brown sugar

- 12 cup flour

- 12 cup oats

- 34 teaspoon ground cinnamon

- 34 teaspoon ground nutmeg

- 13 cup margarine

Heat oven to 375 degrees. Arrange apples in greased square pan, 8*8*2 inches. Mix remaining ingredient; sprinkle over apples.

Bake until topping is golden brown and apples are tender, about 30 minutes, serve warm.

Most of he apples I have had are sweet and sour and great tasting with or with out the skin.

Apples have the following nutrition content:

- Cal. 96

- Protein .3g

- Fat 1.0g

- Carbohydrates 24.0g

- Calcium 12mg

- Iron .5mg

- Vitamin A 150mg

- Thiamin .05mg

- Riboflavin .03mg

- Niacin .2mg

- Ascorbic acid 7 mg

- Sodium 2mg

This information tells me that apples have a very high amount of vitamin A and carbohydrates.

When you buy an apple it should be good in size, have one solid color, no bruises, and they shouldn t be the last ones on the rack, buy them when they re in big quantity.

A fresh apple should be stored in a fruit dish. Canned apples should be stored in a clean and dry cupboard and should be at room temperature. Dried apples should be stored in a tightly sealed container and in a dry spot. Frozen apples should be kept frozen in a tightly sealed container or package.
