Rotten apples

22 Oct

We love going apple picking in the valley.  It’s fun and the apples are crazy cheap.

And then, the bags of apples sit in the bag and rot.

So, with dozens of apples kicken’ around, I gave the boys a challenge to eat more. I packed them in their book bags, I sliced them and added cinnamon, I dried some and made a huge pot of apple sauce.

I even gave a bunch to Colin and asked him to figure out what to do with them. He decided that he wanted to learn how to smoke.  We smoked apples and onions and made a barbecue sauce because that is what Colin does.

And then we made baked apples, which, in our opinion, is the easiest and most delicious way to eat apples.

We halved and cored them and stuffed the hole that remained with:

1 cup quick oats,

1/4 cup butter

tsp cinnamon

pinch salt

a few chopped walnuts.

Baked for 40 minutes and serve with whipped cream. Because everything tastes better with whipped cream.
