Apples: The Whole Story
by Kenneth Hargreaves

Fruits and vegetables are an important part of nutrition and have a lot of vitamins that we need to ensure that we live a healthy life. Everyone has their favorite fruit or vegetable that they like out of the many that are in existence. Kenneth L. Hargreaves takes a trip down memory lane by talking about apple recipes from his family, as well as the history of a variety of apples. During his tenure in the United States Navy, he would produce many entrees, salads, and desserts that would keep his shipmates happy. Many consumers have come to realize just how important fruits and vegetables really are and have started to grow their own using organic growing methods. Apples: The Whole Story will also share some delicious recipes that Kenneth has either produced or gathered over the years.
