Make apple crisp or something. Combining the apples with cinnamon, sugar, and other flavors will compensate for the fact that they've got little flavor on their own. Or stick with the applesauce idea - you really can't go wrong there!

Hi, Angie. It's me again...Katie. I couldn't find where I'd posted my recipe, so here it is:

KATIE’S PINK CROCKPOT APPLESAUCE
(Serves 8)

8 medium Granny Smith apples, peeled and cut into fourths
½ cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup tiny red cinnamon candies
¾ cup apple cider
2 Tbsp. unsalted butter
½ tsp. ground cinnamon
¼ tsp. salt

In a 3½-quart or larger crockpot, mix all ingredients.
Cover and cook on HIGH for about 1½ to 2 hours or until the apples are just beginning to get tender. Remove lid and stir with a wooden spoon to break up larger chunks. Serve warm or chilled. Note: This applesauce can be frozen in airtight containers for up to three months.

Not so sweet, tough apples are actually the best for making cakes, also great accompaniment for pork chops/roasts when cooked together.

Here are a couple of my favourite apple cake recipes!!

This is a nice recipe, but it doesn't call for gala apples...just other types. I've read somewhere combining different types of apples in pies especially gives a nice compliment to each other though.

Katie, I've saved that recipe. I haven't made fresh applesauce in a long time, but that one is very doable for me. I can sit at the island to peel the applesl.
I wonder how it would be with a little Captain Morgan's in it?

My crockpot recipe for applesauce is to fill a 3-1/2 quart crock pot with apple slices; mix 1/2 cup brown sugar and 1 tsp cinnamon and sprinkle on top; stir. Cook on low for 2 hours then stir. Continue cooking on low for another 8-10 hours. Whip with a wire wisk and it's ready to eat.

Most often I start this several hours before bed so I can stir it once after some of the juices are released, then let it cook overnight. The cinnamon is strong but helps with tart apples. When the apples are very tart, I prefer to freeze the applesauce in one cup dishes. Before eating, I let them thaw just a few minutes and use an ice pick to break it up into chucks (it doesn't freeze as hard as ice - at least in my refrigerator freezer) and eat it as slush.

make lots of apple sauce, and if you have food dehydrator cover racks with plastic and light spritz of pam spread your apple sauce dehydrate and roll up. or make dry apple rings. one year a friend gave me 10 5 gallon buckets of apples. apple dumplings, spiced apple rings, apple chutney the list goes on and on my favourite was the apple salad dressing that i created. have fun
