My new toy and apple goodness
Last weekend, Bill, the kids and I picked over 80 lbs of apples at an orchard in a neighboring town. We have been eating plenty of apples this week. I have also been processing them. On Monday, I had the day off tutoring and the kids were home from school due to teacher-in-service, so I decided to make crock pot applesauce and a pie with some of the apples.
I found one on Amazon.com...it got good reviews and it was on sale for $14.00. Yes, please. Placed my order and it was here on Wednesday.
It works good. Some of the apples that I tried on it were overripe, so they would not work on it...however the ones that were not soft at all worked perfectly on it and it saved me so much time. The contraption peels, slices and cores the apples for me!
I used it yesterday to make another crockpot full of applesauce (which I froze) and then I used it again today to help me peel apples for an apple pie, an apple crisp (for my mom) and another crockpot full of sauce!
And of course my kids have enjoyed all the lovely apple goodness! They can never have enough apples!!
What is your favorite thing to make with apples?
