After you have soaked the apples they should be ready to use in your favorite apple recipes
. Shown below are some more tips on storing and using apples.
- Apples give off a natural gas called ethylene, which speeds the ripening process for other fruits. To speed the ripening of other fruits, place an apple, with the unripe fruit, in a paper bag. Seal and make a few slits in the bag. Allow the bag to stand at room temperature for 2 to 3 days.
- Cooked apples will hold their shape better if the sugar called for in the recipe is added at the start of the cooking process.
- Use a greased muffin tin to place apples in for baking. The tins will provide support for the baked apple.
- To keep apples longer, store them so that they are not touching each other.
