Keeping the Crunch
Apple handling and home storage tips
- Handle apples gently to prevent bruising
- Refrigerate in the crisper section; cool air maintains quality, juiciness and crispness
- Store apples in a ventilated plastic bag away from foods with strong odors
"Apple Easy" Snack
- If you are looking for a delicious sandwich idea, take two slices of whole-wheat bread and spread with peanut butter; top with thin slices of apple and slices of cheese; toast in a toaster oven until the cheese melts.
