If you have too many apples to use up all at once, keep them in the fridge because they will last longer than if you leave them out. You could also freeze them – one group member says she removes the core, slices them into chunks and freezes without cooking them for use in puddings. A lovely suggestion also was to make something for a neighbour you haven’t yet befriended. Finally if all else fails put them in the compost or leave them out for the birds.
