Apples




I love keeping apples on hand because they're so versatile.  They store well, taste good, and there are a lot of things you can do with them.

Season- fall, but available year round
Size- average size is 2-4 inches tall and wide
Selecting- choose firm, unblemished apples, avoid those with bruises and weak spots
Storage- good at room temperature sometimes up to several weeks, can be refrigerated for longer storage
Freeze
- frozen apples are good for smoothies, but not for much else
Other- canning and drying are also popular storage methods.

Not much instruction is needed for apples.  Eat them whole or sliced.  Good with the peel on or off.  Apple coring tools are great for quick slices. Quartering and coring apples are easy tasks as well.

Apples brown quickly, so slice right before serving.
