We are moving into a house with apple trees! What all can you do with apples...besides eat them...and make apple pie.

Baked apples - remove core. Stuff cavity with dried fruit of your choice - rasins, apricots, and dates are our favourites. Place in greased baking tray. Sprinkle top with brown sugar and place a small knob of butter on top of each apple. Bake at 180C until apples are tender.

Use apple sauce to sweeten cakes etc.

Apple crumble - three quarter fill baking dish with stewed apple. In a separate bowl mix 6 crushed weetbix, 1/2 cup dessicated coconut, 1/4 brown sugar. Add enough melted butter to moisten mixture (about 1/4 cup). Spread mixture over apples. Bake at 180C for 20-30mins or until topping is crisp. Serve warm or cold with cream, custard or ice cream.

Stewed apple - with cream, custard or ice cream. On it's own. On cereal. With pork/lamb chops or roast pork/lamb/beef. Stewed apple also freezes really well.

Dried apple - get an electric or solar fruit drier or use the oven.

Apple butter or apple jelly - recipes on the web.

Apple tea cake - use your favourite butter cake recipe. Put half mixture in greased tin. Cover with a layer of stewed apple. Top with remaining cake mixture. Bake as per recipe (may need a little longer as centre will be moister). Eat as cake or dessert with cream, custard, ice cream.

Apple slice - heaps of variations on web.

Apple juice - if you have a juicer. The juice also freezes well.

That's all I can think of at the moment. I like cooking with apples

One more thing--make fruit leather! Start by making applesauce, then dehydrate about 2 cups worth spread out in a jelly roll pan. You can add other fruits too, to make other flavors. Yummy and uses lots of apples.

A favorite fall dish here is a soup made with apple, sweet potatoes, and lentils. For summer you could try a chilled apple soup

Apple muffins?

If you eat a lot of apples, which you will be, I suggest getting one of these devices. I know it's not necessary but it makes things sooooo much easier
