1. How to Store Apples

① If you want to keep your apples fresh for a few weeks, try these tips:

Store whole apples at room temperature, away from direct sunlight. They will stay fresh for up to a week.

To keep apples fresh for up to six weeks, store them in the crisper drawer of your refrigerator. Wrap them in a damp paper towel or place them in a plastic bag with holes. Keep them away from other fruits and vegetables because the ethylene gas they emit can cause them to ripen too quickly.

 

If you want to keep apple slices fresh, toss them in lemon juice and store them in the refrigerator for up to five days. This will prevent them from browning.

② If you want to store apples for a few months, you have a few options:

Keep your apples in a dark, cool place. If you don’t have a root cellar, you can use your unheated basement or garage. Just make sure it’s cold and well-ventilated.

Wrap whole apples in paper and store them in a box. If your home is dry, mist the wrapped apples regularly. Check on them once a week and remove any with signs of decay. You can use these apples fresh or cook with them.

Freeze your apples. Toss cut apples in lemon juice to prevent browning, then dry them. Flash-freeze them overnight, then transfer them to a freezer bag for long-term storage. Frozen apples are best for recipes that require cooked apples, such as apple pie or apple sauce. Keep in mind that freezing will cause the apples to lose their crispness and texture.
