Eat This and Well Wisdom sound off on the health benefits of apples. If you want to tune up your digestion, slim down, avoid cancer, relieve asthma, prevent Alzheimer's, manage your diabetes or lower your cholesterol, apples are the fruit to eat - raw or cooked. Eat the skins too!
Pears work equally well in this stewed fruit recipe, and we always add dried fruit, like prunes, figs or apricots, for extra sweetness and flavor. The combination is scrumptious, and of course, promotes regularity!
Cooking Tips: Use a sweet apple, like Golden Delicious or Gala, or a sweet crisp pear like Bosc or Anjou. Cloves are essential, but don't worry if you don't have or can't find cinnamon stick or cardamom pods.
