How to Make the Most of Apple Season
Wondering what to do with all the spoils from a recent apple-picking adventure? Try these apple recipes.
As if apple lovers needed another reason to go apple-picking this fall, here’s one more: The average supermarket variety is actually several months old, according to many reports. To make sure you select the freshest fruits—off the tree, at the farmers’ market or even from the supermarket—look for ones without discoloration or soft spots. Once home, store apples in the refrigerator’s crisper drawer (not a fruit bowl on the counter), separate from ethylene-sensitive fruits and vegetables, like strawberries and asparagus, as the gas from apples can cause the other produce to ripen and rot. Then use your bounty in these unique recipes.
