Quick Tips For America’s Favorite Fruit

By Tammy Williams

Most apples are great for cooking, whether you’re making applesauce, crisps, crumbles, or cake. In general, the apple’s sweetness pairs nicely with classic dishes and can be used as a substitute sweetener.

Here are some tips to get the most out of your apples.

Go for firm
When buying apples, choose ones without bruises or soft, mushy spots. They should be firm for their specific variety (a McIntosh will not be as firm as a Granny Smith).

Wrapped in the dark
To keep apples for an extended period of time, wrap each apple in newspaper (don’t use paper with colored ink), and then store in a dark, cool place like the cellar or the garage. To keep apples in the fridge, place them in a perforated plastic bag and then in the crisper. Do not store bruised or cut apples since that will accelerate the spoilage of the other stored apples.

A touch of lemon
If you’re slicing apples and don’t want the exposed pieces of flesh to turn brown, sprinkle lemon juice over them.

Sweet and tart
When baking a pie, use a mix of sweet and tart apples to obtain a balanced flavor.
