What else apples are good for!

So, I get a weekly email from America's Test Kitchen. The email itself is good and bad, as I've found most times when I find an article that I want to read, I have to subscribe and although the first 2 weeks are free, I don't want to pay for a subscription after that (plus, I'll probably forget to cancel! =). Anyhow! I came across this article, which I thought was neat...

"Apples have long been touted as a health aid (an apple a day…); they're less well known for their ability to preserve food. Adding an apple to a sack of potatoes will keep the potatoes sprout-free—the ethylene gas that an apple emits suppresses the elongation of the potatoes' cells, which is what causes sprouts to form."
