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
Apples brown quickly, so slice right before serving.
