You spend all that time picking the perfect apple, your favorite variety, etc, you want them to keep for awhile, right?
Here’s the secret: Simply store your apples in your refrigerator in those plastic picking bags with a damp paper towel. Without that damp paper towel, the fridge will just dry them out.
Follow these steps and if the apples are in good shape when you put them in the fridge, they can last for months. It’s not magic, but almost. We recall last February we made an Apple crostata with the last of our Jonathans. What a treat!
