I've just bought some in my local co-op that were fantastically reduced to 20p for a bag of 11. Trouble is, there's only the little boy I look after in the day who likes them &I only have him 3 mornings a week.

Can I freeze them? & if not, how long realistically can I expect them to last?

If not long then I will have to make somthing with them so they don't go to waste.

It's no big deal really if they can't be frozen, just his parents haven't actually provided anything for him to eat through the day yet which was the arrangement we had & I feel a bit tigh letting him just watch my lo munch fruit and yougurts or homemade biccy's as a treat in front of him so thought a big bag would last a couple of weeks.

Thanks smile

They'll be horrible if you freeze them whole. They won't last for a couple of weeks - particularly if they are reduced because they've been hanging around for a while. They'll last a few days, a week at the most. You could always stew them and let him have stewed apple - that would freeze.

You must talk to his parents though. If they agreed to provide him with food then it's their responsibility, not yours.

Apple sauce.

Makes a nice snack with some bisuits (provided by his parents, of course)

I'm having them round for a cuppa Weds night to get it sorted. I don't mind so much as I'm doing it as a favour, just a PITA that he's munching his way through my lo's snacks n food

I'll make the apples into a couple of crumbles for us and MIL since they won't last. At least that way I'll get some use out of them, can't not really for that price

Bluebutterfly I might have to try that myself, love apple sauce. Just not apples on their own for some reason hmm

Thanks to you bothsmile
