How do you pick apples?

Choose firm apples that are smooth and have unblemished skin, without bruises. Do not select apples that dent when pressing your fingers against the skin. The choice of apple you select depends on how you plan to use it. See apple varieties for suggestions on which are good for eating out of hand, or for use in salads, cooking or baking.

How do you prepare apples?

Wash apples thoroughly before eating or cutting.

How do you store apples?
