How do I keep my honeycrisp apples fresh?

What's the best way to store apples for the long term? I've got a serious honeycrisp apple addiction going and I want to keep eating them when they're out of season. Supposedly they keep for 3-4 months in the fridge. Is this true? Can I freeze apples and thaw them later? Will freezing destroy the texture or flavor?

How do I squeeze fruit without it squirting everywhere?

Strange question of the day: When at a bar, and one orders a drink that comes with a wedge of fruit, such as a lime with a gin and tonic or a Corona, how does one deal with it? I cannot find a "smooth" way to squeeze the fruit without it squirting everywhere. Should I just leave it alone , or is their some drinking decorum I am lacking? Hive mind, activate!

Cookbook suggestions for cooking with in season fruits and veggies

What is a good cookbook for fresh cooking? I'm looking for a cookbook that takes in-season fruits and veggies and prepares them in a way where their natural flavors come through. I don't want anything heavy like fried foods or so drenched in sugar it will make my teeth hurt. Any ideas? I was looking at How to Pick a Peach by Russ Parsons but wanted to see if there is anything else better out there before I purchased it. Thanks :)
