Cooking Methods

Apples can be enjoyed raw or cooked. Raw apples can be eaten by themselves, or sliced and cut into snacks or recipe ingredients. When slicing an apple, be sure to use an apple corer or slice around the center of the apple with the core, seeds, and stem.

Cooked apples can be included in a variety of dishes.

Apples can be stewed, baked, pan-fried, even grilled! They are truly a versatile fruit. Follow the guidelines of the specific recipe you want to use to cook the apples.

A common way to cook apples is to stew them. To do this, simply chop an apple into pieces, and fill a saucepan with enough water to just cover the apple pieces.Simmer for about 10 minutes until the pieces are soft.


The sweetness of apples pairs well with spices like cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, and cardamom.

Raw apples are great enjoyed by themselves, or with items like nut butters!

Storage & Preservation

Raw, unsliced apples can be stored at room temperature for about 5-7 days, but you should dispose of them if they start to feel mushy or soft.

Cut apples start to go bad quickly and should be used as soon as they are cut. If you want to preserve apple slices for another day or two, try brushing some lemon juice on the inside sides of the slice, and store them in the fridge. If you want less of the lemon taste, you can dilute it with half water before brushing it onto the apple.

Cooked apples should be consumed within a day or two, stored in the fridge.
