Try to choose organic apples if you can, to avoid the chemicals sprayed on the apples.

Storing Apple Sauce
Store the sauce in a sealed container or airtight jar in the fridge. It should last up to 10 days. If you want to freeze the sauce, spoon it into an ziplock bag or air tight container. This should last up to 6 months in the freezer
