cook with pork put one in vegetable soup or in curry (I know it sounds a bit weird but it works for me) apple scones very lovely apple cake flapjacks and my dd and dh eat about 4 a day we still have a serious glut, seven trees, we are drowning in apples.
I give them away too, last year we had lovely plum and apple jelly, but our plums were scarce this year, so maybe have to try elderberry which sounds lovely.
dh talks about making cider but it is just talk I think.
I love apple in porridge too.
my mum made a pie last week that had cooking apples as a filling, with dessert apples sliced on top, the dessert apples were so lovely she had shaken them in lemon juice and a wee bit of sugar... we are going to try storing some but will we be able to mouse proof the storage?
I have also been doing the Nigella Express things: sheet of puff pastry, roll into square, cut 1cm border to puff up, then line with symmatrical sliced apples, drizzle in sugar and butter - bake for 20 mins
wilfsell - we are new to apples too, ours are mixed some old some young, last year we had a lot less, I have heard you have to thin them quite a lot to get a good crop, so if they were not thinned last year then that might have effected what they produced this year?
Apple Chutney is FAB, I made about 12lbs last year. Also make apple jelly and apple curd. Apple sauce to freeze. We don't eat a lot of puddings but I love Eve's pudding and apple crumble, and both freeze ok.
