BF just brought me a bunch of apples from his apple tree!
I want to can them.

I would like to can them when I am on vacation September
21st. What would be the best way to store them until then?

If it makes a difference, they were picked, not on the ground.

Thanks!

Apples store really well if you can keep them cool and with decent air circulation. Just check them frequently for any signs of decay and remove any apples that show signs of starting to rot.

If you make apple pie filling with them, AVOID windfall apples (those found on the ground). It hasn't been all that long that pie filling was fairly risky to do in the home canning world and because of ground-contact, there is a higher risk on bacteria from not only the ground, but also animal and animal feces.

I dehydrate apples nearly non-stop from now until late October, and they are used for out-of-hand snacking, fruit roll-ups, cobbler, pie, applesauce, added to granola and baked goods.....
