After buying more apples than I could finish by myself, I decided to cut them up and freeze them along with fruit that I froze before it would go bad. Freezing your fruit is a great way to take advantage of sales, and if you drink smoothies like I do in the morning, it is a great way to thicken your smoothie and keep it cold as well.
