Aloha Friday: Apples, Apples Everywhere!
As B wrote earlier this week, we went apple picking Sunday morning and picked 35 pounds of apples. I plan on making some into apple sauce using our slow cooker, but that will only use 3 to 6 pounds of apples. Eating apples will use up another few pounds. That still leaves us with many, many, *MANY* pounds of apples left.
Therefore, my Aloha Friday question is: What would you do with that many apples? Do you have any favorite recipes? Feel free to post them (or links to them). If I make and post a "Cooking With TechyDad" using one of the posted recipes, I’ll link to your site.
I’ll start things out with a recipe that I’m planning on using. Every time I make apple sauce, I’m left with a big pile of apple peels. Ideally, I’d compost them, but that’s not a project we’ve felt up to tackling. I hate throwing them out, but I had nothing else to do with them so out they usually went. Instead of tossing them this time, though, I’m going to make crispy apple skins.
Thanks to Kailani at An Island Life for starting this fun for Friday. Please be sure to head over to her blog to say hello and sign the MckLinky there if you are participating.
Apple crisp, apple cobbler, apple butter, candied apples….

Definitely Apple Butter. I love it so much, and it is so healthy as a spread for toast and bagels and whatever else. Plus it is easy to make. Just peel, core and slice the apples. Throw them in a pot with a little water and simmer until they are mushy and there is only a little bit of thick liquid left. Then just pulverize it with a blender, food processor, or something similar.
My Aloha Friday 🙂

What about apple pie filling? Or just plain canned apples that can be used in recipes later. There’s also dried apples which are yummy.
I’d make the best pie in the world, Dutch Apple Cream Pie – yum, yum, YUM!

I would core them and cut them up into slices (if you add lemon juice to them after they are cut they will not turn brown). You can store some of them in gallon ziploc baggies for easy snacking. Then I would make some dips, caramel dip and a delicious fruit dip you can make by taking a jar of Marshmellow cream and two 8 oz. cream cheese and mixing them up thoroughly, it’s the best fruit dip ever and everyone will think you slaved over it. 🙂
Spread the love be jarring apple butter.

When we went apply picking, I made an apple pie, apple cake, and we ate the rest.

We ate all of our apples and had a lot of them. My kids will eat 4 a day if I let them. I do love making this dip for them when I have company.
1/2 cup brown sugar (packed)
1/4 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 pkg (8oz) cream cheese
1 bag of Heath Bar chips
Combine all ingredients and refrigerate. Serve with Apple Slices.

We had a tonne of apples left over from APPLE DAY. I made a huge apple crisp for Beaver camp. I love apple season.

15 Great looking recipes from epicurious – http://bit.ly/28nTzr plus some tips for storing.
My parents used to can a lot of applesauce each fall. We had a regular and a cinnamon recipe that we then enjoyed all year long. Also, we have dehydrated apples for canoe trips. They are great to just chew on or rehydrate to make other recipes.
Applesauce is a family favorite and we go through it like crazy too!
