Humorous Slices 

A green apple, a yellow apple, and a red apple, it’s like a fruity traffic light you can eat . . . . Did you know that my love has the consistency of applesauce? It’s true—and juicy.  ~ Jarod Kintz

I ate a slice of humble pie, and it tasted like apples.   ~ Jarod Kintz

Thoughtful Slices

It is remarkable how closely the history of the apple tree is connected with that of man.   ~ Henry David Thoreau, “Wild Fruits”

Anyone can count the seeds in an apple, but only God can count the number of apples in a seed.   ~ Robert H. Schuller

Every thought is a seed. If you plant crab apples, don’t plan on harvesting Golden Delicious.    ~ Bill Meyer

Healthy Slices

Eating apples is good on so many levels. There’s fiber in the skin that’s really good for you. It helps with digestion and helps you absorb all the nutrients of everything you’ve eaten that day. Apples are a really good thing.   ~ Rebecca Romijn

A Story Poem



Grandma Longenecker’s Apple Schnitz

Grandma Longenecker dried apple slices locked in nutrients and flavor on a vintage food dehydrator similar to this updated one.

The flavor was concentrated, tart, and oh so chewy. Uh-um-good! These look just like Grandma’s! Later Aunt Ruthie Longenecker took over the tradition.
