How about some applesauce?
I like "fried" apples, just peel, remove core, slice or cube, sautee in some butter with brown sugar and cinnamon until crisp-tender. I LOVE this with a good ol' porkchop!
Apple-Fennel-Walnut Salad - cubed apples, cubed fresh fennel, toasted walnuts. Dressing consists of olive oil, walnut oil if available, spring onion, fresh fennel leaves minced, s & p - serve with some grilled chicken, or add some blue cheese to it and use it for a salad topper. This is excellent served with some grilled salmon.
Have you ever dried apple rings in the oven? Or is that how you would even do it?
I made, one time (I didn't write down the recipe) a soup with sausage (kielbasa or andouille) and apples. It was chicken broth based and I think had onion, celery, carrots..............darn, I wish I would have written it down 'cause it was good. But you get the idea.
You can also make a casserole with alternating slices of sweet potato and apple and use a sauce of - I found the recipe - here it is:
3 medium sweet potatoes
2 medium to large apples
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/4 cup margarine or butter
1/2 cup chopped pecans (optional)
-Preheat oven to 350.
-Lightly spray casserole dish with non-stick spray.
-Peel and slice sweet potatoes into 1/4 inch slices.
-Peel, core and slice apples.
-Mix together sugar and spices in a small bowl.
-Place a layer of sweet potatoes in the bottom of the casserole dish, using 1/2 of the potatoes
-Place a layer of apples on top of potatoes, using half of the apples.
-Sprinkle with pecans (if using).
-Cover with 1/2 of the sugar mixture.
-Dot with butter or margarine.
-Bake, covered for 1 hour.
The "fried" apples posted above can be a "stuffing" for some crescent rolls. Stuff and bake. You can also make a ring out of the crescent rolls with the wide part to the center, place stuffing all around and wrap pointed ends into center.
