Planting Apple Trees and Harvesting Apples
- You can freeze apples by stewing washed chunks with a dash of water until they soften. Once ready, sieve and pour the stewed apples into containers, leaving a small space at the top as they will expand slightly when frozen, and pop into the freezer.
- You can also cut your fruits into thin slices then dry them out in a dehydrator to make a deliciously chewy and healthy snack.
- Planning to bake or cook your apples into an apple pie or meal? See our chart on the best baking and cooking apples in North America.
“Baked apples have an excellent effect upon the whole physical system, feeding the brain as well as adding to the flesh, and keeping the blood pure; also preventing constipation and correcting a tendency to acidity, which produces rheumatism and neuralgia.” –The 1898 Old Farmer’s Almanac
