I have just eaten the last of my stored apples. You might just remember me putting the apples in shredded paper last Autumn (Fall) well they have lasted till now. The skins are a bit wrinkled (like me) but still taste sweet (like me?). So YB have a go at it. In fact now they have all gone I will wait till the local store are doing an offer on apples and buy a load to last me till September. Worth thinking about folks.The store when it puts apples in a bag put a sell by date on but if the apples are in a box they keep em till they go rotten. Guess that's progress.

That's Pretty Good

Colin, your storing method worked really well! It's good that your store does deals like that. Our local farmers market reopened for the Spring -- you should see the beautiful asparagus -- and they had two 3x3x1 boxes full of last years apples that looked just fine.

And if they're not that appealing for plain eating, there's always applesauce!

:)

I wonder?

I wonder if I will have apples from my apple trees to try this on before or after I get my root cellar made?

It all depends on how long each takes, it will take quite some time to even dig the hole for the root cellar for it too be big enough and far enough into the hill to keep things cool, and who knows how long till my young apple trees begin producing!

Don't worry

I kept mine in my garage and that was alright. Mind you just make sure you know where it is for when it snows Larry. Hate you go to all that trouble and then can't find the store in the snow.

RE: Find in snow,,,

I hope to put in the root cellar with cinder block walls if I can afford when I get that far, so the door will be straight up and down instead of angular like the hill, this should make it easy to find even in the snow! :)
