Dress Up Your Apples This Thanksgiving



In the midst of prepping the stuffing and mashed potatoes, it’s easy to forget about adding produce to the menu on Turkey day.

But apples are fall fruit superstars! They are in season, delicious, and full of essential nutrients like fiber and vitamin C. These are three great reasons to mix it up this year and try out one of our apple-centered sides.

Broccoli may seem a bit out of place at the Thanksgiving table, but the cranberries help it fit right in.
