How to Store Apples to Keep Them Crisp?

start exploring

A dish of fresh, whole apples is a lovely addition to any kitchen top. But, they'll barely last a week, so eat them soon.

Keep the apples out of the direct sunshine to ensure that they retain their crispness for the longest amount of time feasible.

Storing Whole Apples

If you went apple picking and picked a lot of whole and want to keep them fresh longer, put them in the crisper drawer of your refrigerator.

Apples can stay fresh for about six weeks if you wrap them in a damp paper towel and put them in a plastic bag with holes in it.

The ethylene gas produced by apples can hasten the ripening of neighboring fruits and vegetables, so keep them separated.


Storing Sliced Apples

Apple slices are a healthful snack, but they don't last as long as the whole fruit. Refrigerate apple slices in a closed bag or airtight container.

They will keep fresh for around 3-5 days, after which they will begin to turn brown. To prevent browning, mix your apple slices in a little lemon juice before storing.

Apples can be frozen, but they lose their freshness. Frozen apples are best for pies, tarts, applesauce, and apple butter.

Freezing the Apples!

Sliced apples should be tossed in lemon juice and patted dry before freezing. Flash freeze apple slices for a few hours or overnight.


Finally, place the frozen apple slices in a freezer-safe container and consume them within six to twelve months.
