Uses for Old Apples

February 28, 2005

Old apple isolated against a white backgroundDon't throw away apples accidentally frozen with their skins on. I just recently had a bag of apples freeze when the fridge decided it needed a change. lol. I was determined not to waste them. I let them warm up just a little. By that, I mean, just about twenty minutes. I cored them and was amazed to discover I could peel them! Easily! Not pare them, peel them. It was so neat.


So I thought, hummm, what now? Well, I found the color of the pulp was just a shade darker and the flavor had increased a lot. The first ones I accidentally froze were Red Delicious, and in my opinion, they are not bakers or cookers, just eaters. I ended up with the best tasting apple pie ever, apple cobbler, dumplings and applesauce.

I didn't have to use as much brown sugar either! In fact, I created a recipe I intend to enter into a contest. Even if you have apples you think have seen their day, freeze them. Just because they are old you can freeze them and do something with them. Now, I don't mean soft, icky, throw away ones.

Make applesauce from those apples that your child takes one bite out of and won't finish. I just cut out the bite, cut up the apple and put them in a pan with a little water.

You can peel, core and slice them into apple rings and dry them. It makes a great low-fat and healthy snack.

Core and slice some and put them in the skillet with a tablespoon of butter and some cinnamon and a little brown sugar and stir until soft and serve as a side dish with pork or you peel them and do the same and serve them over vanilla ice cream for a yummy dessert.

My horses love them! And after feeding them an apple or two, I can tell they love me too :)
