February is Apple Month, and throughout the month you can enter a contest for a chance to win $4,000 – $2,000 for you, and another $2,000 for your favourite charity.

The “Good to Go” contest challenges you to upload a photo of yourself enjoying a BC Tree Fruits apple. By sharing your photo and other submissions, you earn voting ballots to vote for your favourite photo/charity. The 10 entries that receive the most votes will then be judged by a panel in order to select a grand prize winner. There are 12 other prizes to win as well.

The deadline to submit an entry is March 4, so get to it soon! Visit www.applemonth.com for contest details.

When I say apples, you may think of the fall season. This mentality should change. Apples, depending on the variety, are now available almost year round – from September/October to somewhere between March and June. In fact, BC Tree Fruits, the largest apple producer of local apples in Western BC, is celebrating Apple Month in February!

Last week we were invited to the Apple Month launch event at the V Lounge @ Earls Yaletown. We were treated to a menu of apple-inspired food & beverage items. Most of them used granny smith (green) apples, but the various combinations were tasty. I especially enjoyed the Apple Collins Cocktail (super refreshing and you really can’t tell there’s liquor in it!), Duck Confit and Apple Chutney (I usually associate apple with chicken, but duck works just as well), and my utmost favourite – Apple Pie on a Stick (I’m totally stealing this idea for future potluck parties!).
