Apple growers told Minnesota Public Radio News they're looking forward to an exceptional harvest. It would be welcome news after the previous year, when spring temperature swings killed off many blossoms.
When my husband, Brian, and I moved out to the farm 19 years ago, my dad planted an apple tree in our yard. He wanted to make sure that the tree was safe from the deer, so he built a fence around the young tree. The fence, a fortress really, was 7-feet high and swinging from it were aluminum pie tins which my dad hung to scare the deer.
The sudden cold snap that interrupted Minnesota's warm spring five weeks ago doesn't appear to have been as big a disaster for the state's apple crop as first feared, but it still has left some growers hurting and worried.
Minnesota apple growers worry that a recent cold snap could kill new buds on their apple trees after early warm weather this spring. Growers are trying to warm their orchards with bonfires and by spraying trees with special solutions. Others are using wind machines and even helicopters to drive cold air out and warmer air down.
It's true — apple juice can pose a risk to your health. But not necessarily from the trace amounts of arsenic that people are arguing about. Despite the government's consideration of new limits on arsenic, nutrition experts say apple juice's real danger is to waistlines and children's teeth. Apple juice has few natural nutrients, lots of calories and, in some cases, more sugar than soda has. It trains a child to like very sweet things, displaces better beverages and foods, and adds to the obesity problem, its critics say.
Herald Food Editor Jeff Tiedeman thought he'd seen it all when it comes to the number of different ingredients that chili can contain — until he came across a recipe from Associated Press Food Editor J.M. Hirsch.
