Apples can be kept up to 5-7 days at room temperature on the counter, but make sure to keep them away from bananas and avocados as they speed ripening.
To prolong shelf life (up to 4 weeks), store apples in a bag in the refrigerator.
Packing school lunch snacks? Keep cut apples from browning by brushing with a thin layer of lemon juice.
Tip: Consider storing an apple with your potatoes in a cool dark place. They'll actually help prevent the potatoes from sprouting!
