I have a surplus of apples and I'm too lazy to start pulling out my canning supplies again to preserve them. What's the best way to make them last? I usually wrap each apple individually with newspaper and store them in the basement, but is there a better method?

Do you want to store them whole or are you willing to dehydrate them? Sun-dried and oven-dried apples last for many months if you don't mind taking that route.

Just as @Emergency Cake opines, it depends on how you want to preserve them. Like other fruits, apples retain better flavor and texture when packed in sugar syrup or sugar.
