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.
