With a range of bright colors such as red, yellow and green, apples are one of the oldest fruits known to man. Though crabapples are the only apples to originate in the United States, all 50 states grow them as a food crop. A sound source of dietary fiber and vitamin C, apples boast a juicy, crunchy texture perfect for everything from a light snack to a hearty pie filling. Blending apples in a blender breaks them down from solid form and makes a base for applesauce and baby food. Blending also provides a simple way to store and freeze applesauce.
