Freeze them sliced, they are a devil to chop up if frozen whole.
However, what do you want to make with them? If wine, You may wish to
crush them up first ( a couple of good smashes with a mallet would do
the trick). If you know someone who has a press get the juice and make
apple cider and perry blending to taste after fermentation is over.
