Being that these are fresh apples, organic even, I thought we should get them cooked up before some of them bruised and got mushy. So I got out the handy dandy apple corer/peeler/slicer that my wonderful husband bought me last year and went to work. We decided that a big apple crisp and some apple sauce was in order.
This is where we started. (Notice mom's iced coffee in the background, it's never far away!!)
Apple peeling is so fun and easy with this gadget! (Iced coffee strikes again!)
Not to mention you get these great peel ribbons that the kids love to eat (and drape around their bodies).
At the end of it we had enough cinnamon apple sauce for a couple days.
And a wonderful dish of simple apple crisp! We're out of ice cream, but I bet it will be great tonight after the kids go to bed... with an iced coffee ;-)
I'm thinking we may need to plan another apple picking trip before it gets too late.... yum!
