Autumn is a season rich in fruits and vegetables and November is the month with the most variety in produce.
Amongst fruits, we have avocado, blueberries, chestnuts, persimmons, cherimoya and pomegranates. Vegetables include chard, artichokes, celery, eggplant, sweet potato and broccoli.
It seems that, from time to time, we realize when eating seasonal products, we always choose apples and today we’re sharing a rich and very healthy recipe: Roasted Apple with Saffron Honey.
The apple is, after the quince, one of the fruits that is richest in tannins, substances with astringent and anti-inflammatory properties. Some tannin actions include drying and reducing inflammation in the intestinal mucosa, so they are effective in the treatment of diarrhoea. It favours elimination of corporal liquids, and is very suitable in the cases of obesity and rheumatic diseases.
The apple is one of the most consumed fruits globally and there are more than 7,500 kinds.
