We are fast approaching apple picking time, so may I offer to those who want to keep their apples over till next spring in a fit state for eating. I pack mine in shredded paper.
Layer of paper, layer of apples and so on till the box is full. Now I kept mine from September last year to well into early summer this year. I found it a lot easier than wrapping each apple.
It is well worth the try.
Worse thing to find in an apple is half a maggot. Where is the other half?
