Autumn means harvests of apples and grapes, two intensely heart-healthy foods. But you can’t just buy them and eat them and expect to get the most out of them.
Like all foods, it is imperative that we understand how to get the most out of them. That we break the cell walls and make it as easy as possible for our bodies to deal with the high levels of fructose in fruit.
Dehydration and fermentation are two excellent methods for achieving these goals. Thus, dehydrated apples and wine are healthier than the raw fruit or fruit juice.
It’s easy to dry apples: Cut them into them slices and cut the centers out with a small cookie cutter. Run a string through the center hole and hang to dry.
Drying grapes is fun and easy...once dried you have raisins...then make raisin tea for a non-alcoholic healthy drink... can't wait? Try this recipe for an "instant" face lift" using fresh grape juice.
