Tips for Getting the Most Out of Your Apples

Because apples are used in so many recipes, here are some quick tips on making them last longer. That way you can continue adding this delicious fruit to your meals and be confident that your apples are as fresh as can be!

  • Storing apples: Make sure to always store your apples in the fridge! They ripen MUCH more quickly sitting out on your counter.
  • Keep apples from going brown: If you want to keep sliced apples fresh, toss them in some lemon juice. This is a great way to help prevent them from going brown and looking fantastic and fresh in your salads.
  • Keeping apples crispy: Store apples in the srisper drawer in your refrigerator or cover them with damp paper towls and put them in your fridge.
  • Pick the perfect apple: sometimes, trying to pick out fresh fruit can be tricky! To pick out apples, make sure that they dont have any bruising. Make sure that the apple is firm to the touch when you pick it up!
  • Different types of apples: To make sure that your apple dishes are turning out the best, its important to know which apples to use for different recipes! Golden Delicious and Rome apples are sweet and great for baking. Fuji and Honeycrisp apples are fantastic for snacking and salads. Granny smith is the best option when you are looking for something that is more tart!
