Avoid storing your apples near onion or potatoes. They'll readily absorb the flavor of other foods and could ripen prematurely.
Store your apples in a cool basement, garage, shed, fruit cellar or refrigerator. The ideal storage temperature is 30-32°F with 90 percent humidity. Apples are likely to suffer freeze damage if the temperature dips below 30°; and will ripen quickly, if the temperature rises above 40°, so do your best to match these conditions.
Red Delicious apples are best used in fresh preparations, as their flesh does not hold up well when cooked. Add to green, fruit and chopped salads. Use as an edible garnish on sandwiches, quesadillas and burgers. Since their flesh breaks down easily, they can be successfully slow cooked and pureed to make sauces and for soups. Their flavor pairs well with cinnamon, cheddar cheese, horseradish, chard, cherries, mustard and pecans. Red Delicious apples can be stored in the refrigerator for up to a month.
Red Delicious apples are high in dietary fiber and contain vitamin C. They offer a small amount of vitamin A and sodium and traces of calcium and iron. Red Delicious apples are higher in antioxidants than many other apple varieties, most of which are contained in the skin.
