Tips
  • If apples are too firm or sour when purchased, leave out at room temperature to ripen.
  • Once apples are ripe, refrigerate in a plastic bag.
  • Apples will keep for 6 months or more if they can be stored in an area where the temperature is between 30° and 40° F with high humidity (difficult to find in most households).
  • To freeze apples: (1) Wash, peel, core and slice apples; (2) Coat apples with a solution made of 1 teaspoon of ascorbic acid for each 6 tablespoons of cold water to prevent darkening; (3) Place in covered airtight containers or heavy-duty freezer bags.
  • Freezer time shown is for best quality only — foods kept constantly frozen at 0° F will keep safe indefinitely.
