Apple Suggestions
An apple peeler works well for slicing, coring, and peeling the apple for pies or crisps.



Apple storage tips
Apples will keep longer if they are not touching other apples.

To keep peeled apples from oxidizing quickly and browning, soak the apples in lemon, orange or apple juice until ready to use. However, if soaked in lemon or orange juice, the flavor is changed to a tart or sweeter orange/apple taste. Using apple juice maintains a flavor more consistent with the flavor of the apple.

Apple Buying tips
Try to find apples where the surface of the apple is unblemished and the apple is firm to the touch.
