When you polish an apple on your shirt before taking a bite, you are continuing an ancient tradition. The Celts rubbed apples to drive out evil fairies hiding inside the fruit.
Medieval Christians thought the practice kept away the devil. These customs reflect the belief that apples contain Earth energies. To this day we still say eat an apple a day keeps the doctor away and they are very good for you, so do try these delicious baked sweet apples They really are magical
