Other than

Crumb Pie
Streusel Cake
Stew/ Sauce
Pancakes/ crepes

and eating raw

I accidentally picked too many

Put them in a pork stew

Eve's pudding?

Freeze them?

I've used it in red cabbage, if you want a more savoury recipe?

Slice and boil red cabbage for about 5 minutes, then drain

Peel and dice a couple of apples

Put a knob of butter in the pan you boiled the cabbage, melt and add the apples and fry gently till they start to go soft (add a little water if it starts to stick)

Tip the cabbage back in, mix together, season, add another knob of butter, put the lid on and turn the heat down and cook gently for another 20 minutes.

If the apples are very sweet, or if you feel the dish is too sweet, add a touch of wine vinegar to sharpen it up a bit.

Ooo yes, yes, red cabbage. I forgot about that, thanks. Am veggie so no pork, I'm afraid.

Can I freeze them without cooking them? Is that a stupid question?

I want to dry them! If it didn't take 10 hours, I'd give it a go

Dried apple rings make a yummy, healthy snack.

Think you can freeze raw, but may go brown?

Oh what about chutney?

Make some cider?!

Afaik, apples can be stored over autumn and winter if wrapped in newspaper in a cool place.

Oooo, cider. Good idea. Will google. I don't think I eat chutney. I could, I suppose. Will look that up too. And wrap others in paper.

Thanks for all the help

My friend made loads of apple chutney, bottled it up attractively and gave it to people for christmas. Homemade presents are great.

Apple ketchup is gorgeous, esp good in sandwiches with pork sausages. DD will eat in preference to bought tom ketchup.
Cooked apple puree freezes or bottles well.
We have a LOT of apple trees grin

I use apple in salads a lot.

Especially good with a crispy lettuce or chicory, some mature cheese, carrot and a vinagry dressing.

Or a kind of coleslaw - grated cabbage, carrot and apple salad, with a vinagry dressing.

Also lovely with black pudding - very typically French - boudin noir aux pommes!

Do you have a good apple flapjack recipe Superbunny or do you just make a regular batch of flapjack mixture and add grated/cubed apples as a sort of layer in the middle?

Inspiration needed!!

Aznerak, I used this. It's really good. Needed to be cooked for longer than recipe suggests though
