Little Thumbs Up : Apple

 Apples from our 70 years old tree 

I'm truly honered to be hosting this month's Little Thumbs Up event  . Thanks to the organizers of this event , Zoe of  Bake For Happy Kids & Doreen from My Little Favourite DIY for giving me this opportunity .  I guess that it’s not a surprise for most of you who are familiar with my blog  that I’ve chosen APPLE as my  theme . Well , I happened to be living in a mini apple orchard & I"m always looking for new apple recipes to use up all my apples especially during autumn/winter .  Here are some of the recipes that I've tried . I'm really looking forward to all your apple entries & sharing your recipes  .  There are more than 7000 varieties of apple worldwide  .  They come in many colors & most commonly seen in red, green & yellow  .  Apples are tasty either in baking or cooking .  They are  packed  with vitamin C , B-complex  , good source of  minerals such as potassium, iron & calcium . An apple has only 50 to 80 calories .  Lots of good reason to eat apple everyday . As the old saying goes 'An apple a day keeps the doctor away' .
