Make sure your apples are ripe, without blemishes, and of good quality.
Wash, core, and peel apples
Wash the apples to remove any pesticide residue and dirt, and then remove their skins and core them.
Cut the apples
Quarter the apples, or slice them into about 12 pieces per medium-sized apple. Apples may also be frozen whole.
Prevent discoloration by tossing the apples in a mixture of 1,500 milligrams vitamin C and 3 tablespoons water.
Pack and label
Pack your apples in freezer containers or zip-closure freezer bags, and then label each container or bag with the date.
Place apples in freezer
Place your apples in your freezer, where they'll keep fresh for up to a year, and may even help you earn bragging rights in baking blue-ribbon pies.
