We just went apple picking and in order to pick yourself, you had to purchase at least 20 pounds. Now I've got a lot of cortlands and macs. I make a mean apple crisp, but you can only eat so much of anything.

Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

i just spent the morning making applesauce with the apples from our backyard. very easy and then I froze it in meal-sized portions -- I am not into canning.

do a web search for applesauce and some kind of recipe should come up. i am at work and my better homes and garden cookbook (which I followed with a little less sugar) is at home.

also -- maybe an apple cake?

high sugar content in this recipe (below). I basically take fresh apples, slice em and boil them for 2 minutes. then follow the recipe below. Apple pie filling is SUPER surgary, but when you just use cooked apples and a little less sugar it still comes out ok.

Apple Enchiladas
1 (21-ounce) can apple fruit filling
6 (8-inch) flour tortillas
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/3 cup butter or margarine
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
1/2 cup water

* Spoon fruit filling evenly down center of each tortilla; sprinkle evenly with cinnamon. Roll up, and place, seam side down, in a lightly greased 2-quart baking dish.
* Bring butter and next 3 ingredients to a boil in a medium saucepan; reduce heat, and simmer, stirring constantly, 3 minutes. Pour over enchiladas; let stand 30 minutes.
* Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.
Yield: 4 to 6 servings

you can make and can apple sauce, apple chutney, and apple pie filling. IMHO better than freezing, but a bit more time consuming. you can make apple pie or crisp with the filling.
apple cake is soooo good and freezes well. we really like baked apples with rasins. and spiced apple rings are good...they look so pretty in the jar too. 20 lbs of apples isnt really too much once you peel and core them

Thanks for the ideas. I didn't get a chance to check back until just now, and of course we just ate all the apples raw. So much for my grand plans of being domestic! I know we'll be back apple picking again this fall and I did find a good apple cake recipe and the enchiladas sound good. I can't imagine making apple sauce just because I can't imagine eating it unless your under the age of 1 (my personal bias......: )

Thanks again.
