Nutritional Info

 

Apple Nutrition data and benefits

Apples are low in calories and rich in vitamin C, potassium and fibre, as well as several important antioxidants, including quercetin, catechin and chlorogenic acid. Some studies have shown that they can be beneficial in lowering blood sugar and cholesterol levels, preventing heart disease, and possibly even the risk of cancer.

Can you freeze apples?

Apples can be easily frozen and will keep for several months. Defrosted apples are best juiced or used in jams, cakes, applesauce and other non-raw recipes, though, because freezing them changes their texture.

It’s possible to freeze apples either whole or sliced. To freeze whole apples, place them on a baking sheet in the freezer, to prevent them from clumping together. Once thoroughly frozen, you can keep them in a box or freezer bag.

To freeze apple slices, peel, core and slice the apples, then dip them in lemon juice or blanch them for a minute or two to prevent browning. As with whole apples, freeze on a baking shit before removing and placing in bags.

Pear Nutritional data and benefits

Pears are low in calories, easy on the stomach and good for aiding digestion, as they are high in fibre. They are a good source of antioxidants, vitamins C and K, and potassium. They also provide smaller levels of vitamin B6, magnesium, folate, iron, calcium and riboflavin. Red-skinned pears also provide good levels of carotenoids, flavonoids and other antioxidants.

How to store pears

Pears do not ripen on the tree, and they also ripen from the inside out. This means that a pear that’s soft on the outside may actually be overripe on the inside.

Unripe pears can be left at room temperature to ripen. You can speed up the process by storing them in a paper bag or keeping them next to bananas and avocados. A pear is ripe when its neck gives slightly to pressure when pressed gently. Once ripe, store pears in the fridge, where they can be kept for a few days.

Rhubarb nutrition facts

Although rich in fibre, rhubarb isn’t particularly vitamin and mineral rich, although it’s a good source of vitamin K1 and antioxidants (polyphenol, anthocyanins, proanthocyanidins) and a decent source of vitamin C.

Can you freeze rhubarb?

Rhubarb can be easily frozen. Wash and dry the stalks and cut them into smaller pieces. Freeze in trays in a single layer to begin with to avoid sticking. Once frozen (it takes about 3-4 hours) remove from the tray and keep in a sealed bag or box in the freezer. When frozen in this way, rhubarb can be used for up to a year.
