Preserving Autumn Apples

After our recent trip to the orchard, I searched online for a method of storing apples for later use.

I came across this post by Mennonite Girls Can Cook.  They recommend peeling and slicing the apples before placing them in a bowl of salted water.  Once they are all prepared, they are drained and then laid out on trays for the freezer.

Once froaen, they can be bagged and stored in the freezer until required.  The preparation went smoothly, with no evidence of browning.  

Now we can look forward to apple treats in the dark days of winter.  


  1. What a great idea! I've always wrapped my apples in newspaper and left them in the basement. They're good until January that way, but they get a bit wrinkled and sponge-like, which makes them hard to peel. I'll definitely try this for next year. Bx

  2. They seem to have frozen well, but the real test will be in the eating.

  3. This is such a great way to keep extra apples... I can't wait to try it next year! Thanks for the tips/link, Marie! :) ((HUGS))
