Look for apples that are smooth, firm and have stems. Avoid buying apples with broken or bruised skin.
Bruised apples are still good to eat, just cut out the bruised spots.
Don’t throw away wrinkled or shriveled apples, cook them to make applesauce or apple pie.
Squeeze lemon or lime juice on cut apples to keep them from browning.
