Frozen Apples

I have two apple trees full of fruit, but there is a foot of snow on the ground. Now that I have the time to do something with them, I don't know if I CAN do anything. Any recipe suggestions?

I would leave them for the deer to munch on.

Try cooking a couple down to applesauce. If it works, get out there and gather the rest and start canning. Otherwise follow Aunt Bea's suggestion. After all deer have to eat also.

Well, I have goats, so I'd rather give them to the herd, but alright. I waited too long, I suppose.

Actually, they should be OK for sauce and butter, or sliced up and frozen again. Pick a few and bring them inside to thaw, then taste. Apples can handle some cold without much damage, and it takes awhile for them to actually freeze.

My mom loves to simply eat them. She purposely puts apples in the freezer.

Out here they call them Ice Apples and sell them for a very short time right after the first freeze. They are delicious!
