ISO ideas for mushy apples

I have some Gala apples that are too mushy for my tastes. Does anyone have idea on what I can do with them, other than pitch them?

You can try to grate them and use them to make apple bread or muffins.

Grate them and use them in fruit cole slaw with carrots, cabbage and crushed pineapple.

cook them with potatoes and onions.
grate them for pancakes or muffins.
add them to sauerkraut
Core them, add a dot of butter and granola, then bake them.
Slice, grill, and serve atop a turkey sandwich.

Saute them with some onion, garlic, mushrooms, fresh thyme, deglaze with some calvados and use as a stuffing for pork tenderloin.

Or, fry in butter with a bit of sugar (maple sugar is really nice), nutmeg, vanilla, and use them in crepes.
Practice safe lunch. Use a condiment.

Make a crockpot of saurkraut, cabbage, apples and some sort of pork, e.g. ribs (spare or country style), pork chops or kielbasa.
