A Family Tradition...


Since my kids have been little, this has been the go-to snack for before bedtime. Yes, we sometimes would deviate, but going on the old saying "An apple a day keeps the doctor away!" I tried to get my kids to eat an apple every day. Throw in some saltines to balance out the sweetness of the apple and you've got a great little snack!

And...even though I have no "little" kids anymore, I still find myself a lot of evenings in the kitchen slicing apples and breaking open a sleeve of saltines and filling several bowls to pass out. This time of year, with fresh honeycrisps from the orchard, I hardly have anyone turn me down when this is offered.

Try it sometime...I bet you end up liking it!
