What to do with tart apples?

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Countryside : One Thread

I still have a few buckets of apples left to process... and I need some more ideas. I have done pie filling, and apple butter. Jelly would be okay but I already have so many jams up, something else would be better. Any ease applesauce recipes out there, or other ideas?

This is what we call Apple Gooey. When my kids were little, they loved it and so do my grandkids. Peel, core and chunk apples. Put in dutch oven or similar pan with just enough water to keep from sticking. Cook apples for a little while but don't let them get mushy. Add honey and cinnamon to taste and lots of raisins. Heat long enough to soften the raisins. You can can or freeze this. Thaw and serve hot or cold. Enjoy!

Two ideas. Dehydrate them as snack chips or put up a gal or two of wine , cider or vineager. Countryside carried articles last year on how to make cider vineager ( Ididn't really want to take the wine that far, but a daily dose of apple cider vineager is healthy)

Applesauce receipe: Cut up apples in quarters. No need to core or peel. Put in large pan on stove. Add small amt of water (like one cup-2 cups) Add about 6 cups of sugar if you have at least a gallon of apples. Cook uncovered. Stir often and keep heat low. Add more suger to taste. When all mushy, run through collander and into canning jars. I use pints. Seal and do hot water bath with the jars. This is a regular canning method. I am a terrible cook but this receipe is very easy and even I can do it.
