Raw apples are also specifically listed in a menu in "Ouverture de
Cuisine" (France, 1604).

I'm very sure the whole "they didn't eat raw fruit" meme is one of those
"everyone knows" things that isn't true.  Not quite as bad as the "using
spice to cover the taste of spoiled meat", but still incorrect.
