Apples are the basis for some of the best snacks I’ve ever enjoyed. They don’t have to be boring. It is easy to dress them up in a simple, healthy manner for a variety of flavors–and it all takes about a minute.
Wash the apple. Use a dirty knife to cut it. By dirty, I mean one you have used to prep garlic or slice onions. This coats the cut surface with a slight sheen of savory flavor. That is transferred to the surface of the fruit. Then, spread on fresh, ground peanut butter.
Garlic (or onion) and peanut butter make a great pairing for a sandwich, too. If you ever feel a cold coming on, a raw garlic and pb sandwich will clean out your sinuses and even your lungs. It can be a painful treatment if you get a particularly stout clove, but the results are worth the momentary discomfort.
