Benefits of Apples | What to Know | TN Nursery

Monday, July 18

Do you love apples? There are so many things that you can do with apples

For example, you can make apple jelly, apple pies, apple butter, and apple turnovers, just to name a few.

Apple turnovers are a family favorite in our home, and this easy recipe is one of my kid's favorite treats; it's so simple even the kids can do it.

You will need

4-5 medium apples

One can of biscuits (the pull-apart does not work well)

1/2 stick butter


1/2 cup brown sugar (white works too, but the brown gives it a sweeter taste)

1 cup of water

Non-stick Cooking pan (casserole dishes work the best.)

Preheat your oven to the temp your can biscuits say.

Wash and clean your apples, and set them aside. Flatten each biscuit out; if you don't have a rolling pin, a glass cup with flour works well too. Peeling apples is an option because some people prefer peeling while others do not. After you decide to peel or not to peel your apples cut them into wedges and place a piece onto each biscuit, fold the biscuit over and pinch the edges together. Put your turnovers into your pan.

On the stove, slow-medium heat melts your butter, sugar, and water together; mix in cinnamon to taste. I usually add some to my mixture and then sprinkle some on top. As your mixture melts, pour over the biscuits. Sprinkle cinnamon and sugar on top and bake until your biscuits are done.

You can serve it warm or let it cool. My family loves to serve this in a bowl next to a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

Apple Fruit Trees

Apple Trees are valuable contributors to local ecosystems. Their blossoms provide nectar and pollen for bees and other pollinators, aiding in pollinating nearby plants. When they fall, the leaves add organic matter to the soil, enriching its fertility and promoting a healthy microorganism population. Enjoy the Beauty and Fruits of Apple Trees They produce pink blossoms anywhere between the middle of April and the middle of May. The number of frost hours (usually ranging from 500 to 1,000 hours) that the plant endures during winter dormancy and the varietal determine the precise date. All types typically develop leaves about four weeks before they bloom. Each of the ten ovules at the base of a bloom contains an egg cell that, if fertilized, grows into a fruit. When they are in full bloom, their white and pink blossoms release a delicious fragrance reminiscent of fruit. They also have a fruity scent. Encourage Pollination With Apple Trees Apple Trees attract pollinators throughout the spring by feeding bees, butterflies, and moths nectar. The flower's base is where the fruit grows after pollination and fertilization. When the petals fall off, the produce results from the base ovary expanding. The fallen flowers provide a healthy diet for the produce that falls to the ground in the fall. The blossoms in the spring and the leaves in the autumn contribute to the plant's aesthetic value. They are beautiful in the spring with their brilliantly colored blooms, which might be white, pink, or red. They mature into shades of red, purple, and gold throughout the autumn. Protect Wildlife With Apple Trees Because Apple Trees provide food and shelter, they benefit wildlife. Spiders like them for the water and sugar they provide. Bees love the nectar and pollen. Buds found on the plant offer essential nutrients for bullfinches. During the winter, several bird species use holes in them to nest or store food—animals like deer, raccoons, turkeys, and mice like them.
