  • 10 apples


  • Peel and core the apples. I cut my apples into eighths, but if you want thinner slices to use in baked goods, then cut them even smaller!
  • Soak the apple slices in a lemon juice bath for 5 minutes. 4 cups water + 2 tablespoons lemon juice.
  • Drain. Either dump the apples into a colander or scoop them out with a slotted spoon. Let them sit on a baking sheet propped up on one end to drain thoroughly.
  • Arrange on a large baking sheet. I love these baker's half sheets.
  • Freeze for 4 hours- overnight.
  • Transfer to a freezer bag, labelled with the contents & date. Pictured in this post are these reusable silicone freezer bags.
  • Freeze for up to 1 year!
