38 (very large) apples off our little tree this year.

We've been busy making all sorts of goodies with them this afternoon but what's the best way to preserve apples whole, for eating?

Them's some shiny apples.
And according to random website google threw at me:

"Storing Apples Whole

• Store apples at a constant temperature--and the cooler the better, down to 32 degrees Fahrenheit. Cellars and basements work well, as do unheated closets or pantries with an outside wall on the north side of the house. The storage drawer in a refrigerator is an excellent choice if you can spare the space. Steer clear of the garage. Even though the garage may be unheated, temperatures tend to fluctuate too much for good apple storage.

• Wrap apples individually in one-quarter sheets of newsprint to keep them from touching each other. Bruising and coming in contact with an apple with a rotten spot can spoil the whole bunch."

That's very helpful Wendy, tnx.
We have a "spare" fridge in the shed, I'll wrap them up in newspaper and put them in there.

We only had half a dozen off our little tree (saved from a skip 3 years ago), but Dave set too and made an apple and blackberry crumble (blackberries being most abundant in our garden) .... 'tis all gone now, our son and his footie playing friends having swooped down and devoured all edibles in sight ....

I'll wrap them up and stick them in the fridge, that's about as dark as you can get it and it's not turned down that low.
Tnx.
