This post will show you 5 different ideas you can use  for apples.

*Bake with them.  

Apple pie is one of everyone’s favorite pies and  bake up to a delicious dessert. By using a blend of different slices in a pie you can  get a wonderful pie. For any one of these ideas this great apple peeler makes the  the job of peeling quick and maybe even fun!

 There are also other ways to bake with apples if pie baking sounds a little intimidating! 

 Apple cake is easily mixed up in one bowl  and baked in a 9 x 13 inch dish, then served warm with ice cream!

*Dry apples.

Dip the slices in some lemon juice to keep them from discoloring. Lay the slices on each tray of your dehydrator keeping them flat with no overlap.

Each dehydrator has specific directions to follow in their enclosed booklet, so by following these you will just how long it will take.

I use this dehydrator. Rosewill Countertop Portable Electric Food Fruit Dehydrator Machine with Adjustable Thermostat, BPA-Free 5-Tray RHFD-15001

It runs quietly &  has 5 shelves that are easy cleanup.  It will probably take about 10 hours to dry them completely. Store in either freezer bags or mason jars.

*Cider

There are a lot of great recipes for cider online which surprisingly is easier than you think. One of my favorites is from www.sallysbakingaddiction.

She places a variety of sliced apples ( leave those skins  on) with a few other ingredients and places everything in a Slow cooker at low for 6-7 hours.  Once cooked down just mash it up and strain through a mesh sieve. Serve warm! 

l

*Freeze

This is another great way to have apples for baking later. Peel,  core and slice the apples then place on a cookie sheet. Once frozen (about an hour or up to overnight) place them in freezer bags. This will keep them from sticking together.

* * you can soak them in lemon water before the cookie sheet step but that is optional! 

*Sauce- 

Applesauce is a nice addition to any meal that cooks up quickly and is good for you too!

Just peel your apples and place thin slices in a 2 or 3 quart sauce pan. A little water can be added to the apples.

 Just Cook on low/medium  heat stirring occasionally. Once the apples start to cook down mash them down a potato masher works great! Continue  to cook on low heat. Adding sugar is optional.

Apple  sauce can be frozen in containers and taken out and reheated. 

So as you can see there is no end to what you can do with  a bushel of apples.

Apple  season is upon us  once again. Why not   enjoy a treat with such a versatile fruit.
