With this method, apples can be stored for a long time without canning, cooling, or dehydration. But there is one important condition for this: the apples must be perfect. The skin must be intact and free of bruises or cuts. It is also important that the apples are not damaged by insects.

After selecting these apples, they need to be packed in dry material. Sawdust, newspaper, millet, or sand dried by heating will do just fine. Next, the apples are placed in a cool, dry place away from potatoes as the latter give off gas that causes apples to rot quickly. This will keep the apples fresh for several months.
