How to Select

Choose firm, shiny, smooth-skinned apples with intact stems. Should smell fresh, not musty.

How to Store

Refrigerate apples in plastic bag away from strong-odored foods. Use within 3 weeks.

How to Prepare

Rinse the apples with water. You may scrub them with a produce brush. To peel, use a vegetable peeler or paring knife. Cut away the core and seeds, stem, and ends, then slice each quarter as desired.
