10 Ways to Preserve Apples

Autumn has arrived and we find ourselves eating an abundance of fresh, crisp apples freshly picked from our local orchard.  If you brought home a few too many bushels of apples from your orchard, you might need to put a few up for later.

Penn State Extension has a great article about the variety of methods you can use to preserve apples. You’ll learn the characteristics of apple varieties and which types are best for freezing, canning, pressure canning, as well as a number of basic apple preserving recipes. When canning apples it’s suggested to use apple varieties that are crisp and firm and will retain their shape and texture – see chart below.  Preserving Apples – Penn State Extension
