General Apple Information

Store apples in refrigerator. The best choice for many bakers is a mixture of apples to achieve a balance of sweet and tart, soft and crisp.

  • 1 pound, or 3 to 4 medium apples = 1-1/2 cups applesauce
  • 7 to 9 medium apples for 9-inch pie

Applesauce can be frozen; increase spice being used by about 1/4, as flavor decreases during frozen storage. Cool quickly, package, seal and freeze at once.
