How to Store Apples
Learn how to store apples and keep them fresh all winter.
- Store your fresh apples that don’t have wormholes or bad spots. Wrap each apple in a piece of newspaper.
- Place the apples inside a plastic bag. Put the bag of apples inside an apple box. This bag is tied off with a string or rubber band.
- The plastic bag keeps them from drying out. The paper wrapping will help absorb the moisture from any apples that may spoil. If one apple goes bad, separating the apples with paper keeps the other apples from spoiling.
- Put the boxes of apples in a refrigerator or other cold storage area. Apples keep best if they’re stored at a temperature of 35-40° F.
- Apples that are stored this way keep through the winter and stay firm and crisp.
