A famous saying goes as follows - “An apple a day keeps the doctor away”. Apples are a good source of dietary fibers and vitamin C. They are also rich in vitamin A, iron and calcium. Last weekend we had visited an Apple Orchard and got about 2 bags full of apple. Now my daughter had some nice ideas to make apple delicacies like; apple salad with grapes and cherry tomato, apple cider, apple cake, etc. I also made apple raita, fruit salad, and a very delicious halwa…...
