I love apples. The yummy tasty organic kind. Except we can only get them in big bags, and some inevitably go soft/bad to the point I won't eat them b/c I cant stand the texture.

What can I do with them?

Make applesauce, chop up and cook in oatmeal, fry in coconut oil and sprinkle with cinnamon, apple crisp...anything that requires cooking them will hide the softness.

apple crisp :

I have a tree that has soft mealy apples that I cannot eat fresh but they make great crisp! Applesauce and pie are good too.

saimeiyu: How about using them in baking? You won't notice the grainy texture at all in apple muffins, apple loaf, apple pancakes etc. Or you can sauce them as a PP suggested and use the applesauce in place of butter or oil for baking--very healthy!

If decomposition persists please see your necromancer.
