Where in the world did apples first come from? Why do apples float in water? How many apples goes into a glass of apple juice? On this episode of Time For Lunch, Hannah and Harry are getting to the core of autumn’s signature fruit: apples! Apple expert or “Pomologist”, Ian Merwin tells us about studying this tasty fruit and apple growers Deva Maas and Eric Schatt share some methods for keeping their trees happy and healthy. Plus, our friend Maile Carpenter, author of Food Network Magazine’s “Big, Fun Kids Cookbook”, and her daughter Sawyer, share a recipe for apple chips.
