How Can I Freeze Apples?

Properly prepared, apples can last in the freezer for several months without tasting bitter or dried-out. Apples that have been frozen are only suitable for baking once defrosted as their texture changes once frozen.

Top Tips For Freezing Apples:

  • Freezing whole apples – wash and dry the apples (whole with skins). Place onto a metal baking tray and freeze for 1-2 hours or until frozen through. Once completely frozen, place the apples into airtight bags, squeeze out the excess air and freeze.
  • Freezing sliced apples – place slices of apples in a single layer on a metal baking tray and place in the freezer until frozen. Place the slices into an airtight bag, squeeze out the air and freeze.
  • Frozen apples are best used within 2-4 months.
  • Frozen apples are not suitable for eating thawed as they change in texture and flavour, but are perfect for baking.
