Best Apple Tip: Long Term Fresh Storage
We picked another 1 1/2 bushels (60 pounds!) of apples at Charlie's Apple Farm today. I was talking with some fellow pickers how to store apples. I learned this method from Charlie himself and tested it last year: 1) Wash apples with clean water.
2) Still wet, place in a plastic grocery sack.
3) Tie loosely.
4) Store in crisper drawer of your refrigerator.
That's it! Choose unblemished apples and rewet as necessary. From apples I stored this way in October 2008, I ate my last bite in April 2009!
