Our top tips
Storage: apples and pears are best stored in the fridge or in a cool place, where they'll remain fresh for weeks.
Overripe fruit: if you find yourself with a surplus of overripe fruit, try juicing the apples or making a pear smoothie. Don't forget to use the entire fruit; your Thermomix® will easily blend it, core and all! You could also dice your fruit and use it in a delicious fruit crumble.
Save for later: peel, cut, core and freeze your excess apples and pears, and you'll have a supply of fruit to make your autumn favourites all year long! If you'd prefer not to freeze them, try making a quick fruit compote to enjoy over the coming days.
Know your varieties: opt for crisp varieties of apples and pears if you're baking, as they keep their shape and brown nicely on top.
Using apple sauce: for a lighter dessert, replace some of the butter or oil in your recipe with some homemade apple sauce.
