APPLES THE FOR BITIN FRUIT

APPLES. THE "FORBITIN'" FRUIT by Karen A. Lech THE APPLE - This incredible fruit is linked with a deceitful talking serpent, and the downfall of woman, and man! Forbidden fruit! -What sort of connotation is that? Poor, innocent apple! I say we change the apple's image. Not forbidden, but for biting.

It would be easy to understand why this precious jewel of the fruit world would be 'forbidden'. An apple should portray goodness, for that is what they are ? totally good. Unless you get a rotten one. "One bad apple" - a bad apple is totally distasteful; a desecration of all that is pure and, well, good. Apples are used in everyday language, "apple-cheeked" and other terms and clichés that sound like proverbs? "an apple a day keeps the doctor away".

"Don't sit under the apple tree with anyone else but me?".A line from an old song circa World War II. At this time of year, we could change the lyrics a bit to? Don't sit under the apple tree?without a helmet. Why? A bombardment of windfalls may knock you nearly senseless, as I found out when apple picking the other day. Yes, it's that time of year for apple picking! Just reach up to a branch and pluck.

The apple tree's branches slump like shoulders -.a weary mother laden with the burden of oh-so-many children hanging on her arms. An apple fits perfectly in the palm of your hand. A nice, solid feel, a globe of delight, a treat for every sense. Its skin may be a bit dusty from the elements of wind, rain and sun. You vigorously rub it on your shirt front or the hem of your skirt, and voila! It shines like a coffee table polished with lemon oil.

You press it to your lips; its perfume invigorates your nostrils? crisp, the tang of the incredible juices, the sweetness of a season of sunlight and rain, only to be made sweeter perhaps, by a coating of gooey, buttery caramel. The crunch of the skin bursting when bitten to let loose the fragrance and solid fruit and ambrosia ?like juice within. Is there anyone who does NOT like an apple? Under a magnificent skin color, lies the clear white of a McIntosh. The ruby skin of the Jonathan covers its cream-colored flesh.

Golden yellow with freckles of bronze ? the Golden Delicious. The varieties are almost endless, as well as the possibilities of what can be done with the apples upon returning to your creative room.the kitchen. Even the word "apple" sounds nice. It has a nice, rounded sound when we speak it. And oh! the triggers of memory that come with it.

Apple pie, apple cider, apple dumplings, taffy apples, apple slices layered in a velvety gel spiked with cinnamon and sandwiched between two layers of a melt-in-your-mouth flaky crust, the top crust blanketed in a frosty sugar glaze. How we take the apple for granted! The merry month of May skips along the happy path of sunshine with laughter and embraces the apple trees with warmth. They respond with glee and burst forth a fragrant floral display, making the trees look like they are holding snowballs of whitish pink. The five-petaled flowers of the apple trees soon drift down to the ground on a Zephyrus day, leaving the heart of the flower to grow for a season. The heart of an apple, its core, is five segmented also, and holds about 5-10 seeds.
