Dessert apples - glut!

    I only have dessert apples and use them as I would baking apples and add little or no sugar. They have been fine from fresh in pies. Maybe if yours are firmer you could slice & slightly soften in the microwave, cool and then add to pies. I freeze loads that I cook down until soft or puree and use as stewed as a dessert, or as apple sauce ( with a squirt of lemon in ) to have with meats.

  • Thanks to all for all your helpful comments. Yesterday after all the wind, my son and I juiced about 60 apples - now have litres of organic apple juice in the fridge which tastes and looks great (pink). I then sliced and stewed another dozen or so for the freezer. The rest as they fall will go in apple cake and crumble.  I might give the tarte tatin a go - never made one before. Thanks again.
