Look for brightly coloured apples that are smooth, firm and free of wrinkles, bruises and punctures. The skin should be clean and shiny, but don’t worry about any brown freckles, they’re harmless. To store apples, poke a few holes into a plastic bag, then refrigerate the apples in the bag in the fruit crisper drawer. Green apples, which have a long shelf life, can be stored this way for up to a month.
