Apples

Store apples up to 7 days on the counter, then move them to the refrigerator. Keep them away from bananas and avocados as they speed ripening.

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!
