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.
