Using Up Red Delicious Apples

They are not my favorite apples, and HH got them by mistake last week (I had said, get ANY KIND BUT....).

How to finisht them off? Too mealy to enjoy eating raw. Too mushy for a pie? Homemade applesauce?

I've got six of them left.

Not my favorite apple either, but I have used them in a stuffing for boneless pork chops (bacon, onion, crumbled corn muffin, chopped apple, sage). Maybe bake them with some butter and brown sugar, or saute them with brown sugar and butter and pour over vanilla ice cream.

Try this recipe. It's so easy. Toss everything into a bowl, mix and bake. Although the recipe calls for Macs, I've made it with several different types of apples.

Andy

Apple Squares

1 C Flour
2 tsp Baking Powder
1 1/4 C Sugar
1/2 tsp Salt
1/2 tsp Cinnamon
2 Eggs
3/4 C Chopped Nuts
3 Macintosh Apples, diced


Preheat the oven to 375 F.

Grease a 8x8 pan.

Mix all the ingredients together and pour into the pan.

Bake for 35-40 minutes.

Cool and cut into squares.

Serve with vanilla ice cream.

I know this doesn't sound to good.. but it actually is:
just dice up the apples.. after you peel them.. add mayonnaise and chopped walnuts.. and its a salad.. works great with red delicious apples .. and really does taste good

Dice the apples and saute them with butter, cinnamon, nutmeg and brown sugar.

Serve as a topping for waffles.

In southern Illinois, we call that fried apples, Andy. You can add a few plumped raisons, if you wish. I like to serve them with ham and pork, or for dessert with ice cream.

If you want to make applesauce, core apples and chunk up, leaving the peelings on. Put in a saucepan with 1/2 cup of sugar, and cook on med/low heat until the juices start to run. Turn heat up a little and let cook till soft. Run through a food mill, then put in a pan and slowly reheat. Check seasoning, and add more sugar if needed, a splash of lemon juice, cinnamon to taste, or 1-2 tablespoons Red Hots in place of cinnamon.

If you want to use the Food Processor instead of a food mill, you'll need to peel the apples before you cook them. Personally, I think the peelings add a lot of taste.
