      Interesting! Never tried these variations. I eat an apple or two every day and prefer to bite on it straight away and not even cut it with a knife.

      I think I'd try the apple with roasted cumin powder and add some extra yogurt as well. My kids will be asked if they'd like to sample apple with peanut butter tomorrow! Interesting ideas. Voted useful!
