What do you make with apples? No pies please...

my neighbor brought over a huge bag of just picked apples. I do not like apple pie so what else can I do with them? Please share you recipes with me. I have never worked with apples before.

  • We make fritters and apple butter spread. Of course the fritters are much like a "hot pocket" with pie dough - so you may not like that. Check the recipes for apple-butter. It's a wonderful breakfast spread.

  • You didn't say what kind. If they are not red or golden delicious I would make spiced apples. peel and core them cut them in large chunks. Place in a pan sprikle with cinnamon add about a cup of water per 8 medium size apples. and sugar or splenda to taste (1/2-1 cup per 8 apples) Bring to a boil, then turn the heat down to a full simmer stir freqently. Usually about 10-15 minutes. Simmer until apples are tender but not until they are mushy. the liquid will thicken. I serve this by itself with cream, over ice cream,, with pork chops, at holiday meals or on english muffins after refrigerated.

  • Fried Apples! Ok, well they aren't really fried. Of course, these have to be a "cooking" kind of apple, or it doesn't work out.

    I don't have an actual recipe, I just make them. Always have.

    Slice the apples. Put them in a pan. Sprinkle a little sugar one them. Add some cinnamon if you like. Throw a couple tablespoons of water on top, cover with a lid and cook till soft.

    Oh I guess it sounds a lot like what GrnEyedGrandma posted.

    I serve them as a side at breakfast or with porkchops, as dessert over icecream, put them on the kids oatmeal. It takes like the filling of an apple pie. I like them with some cream poured over them.

  • Set oven to 350°F. Set oven rack to second-lowest position. Grease a 12-cup bundt pan.

    In a bowl, sift flour, cinnamon, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Sprinkle 3 tablespoons of the flour mixture into the Bundt pan and tilt pan to coat. In another bowl, place the chopped apples and 2 tablespoons of the flour mixture; toss to coat.

    In another bowl combine 1-1/4 cups brown sugar, 1 cup white sugar, vegetable oil, eggs and vanilla; beat with an electric mixture until combined and thick (about 4 minutes). Gradually beat in the remaining flour mixture until combined. Fold in the chopped apple mixture and pecans into the batter. Transfer to prepared bundt pan. Bake for about 1 hour or until the cake tests done. Transfer the cake to a rack then prepare the caramel glaze.

  • To make the glaze: melt butter in a small heavy-bottomed saucepan. Whisk in 1 cup brown sugar then the half and half or cream. Continue whisking until the glaze is smooth and comes to a boil. Add in 1 teaspoon vanilla, and remove from heat. Spoon about 1/4 cup of the hot glaze over the warm cake that is still in the pan. Let the cake sit for 15-20 minutes to absorb the glaze. Turn the cake onto a platter, then pour the remaining glaze over the cake. Let stand until cool (at least 1 hour) before slicing.

  • Apple Pudding (not TNT)
    4-6 cooking apples, peeled, cored, and sliced
    1/4 cup (60 ml) sugar
    1/2 tsp (2 ml) ground cinnamon
    1/2 tsp (2 ml) freshly grated nutmeg
    1/4 cup (60 ml) hot water

    For the batter:
    1 egg
    1/2 cup (125 ml) sugar
    2 Tbs (30 ml) vegetable oil
    1 cup (250 ml) all-purpose flour sifted with
    1 tsp (5 ml) baking powder and
    A pinch of salt
    Place the apple slices in a lightly greased baking dish. Sprinkle with the sugar and spices and add the hot water. Beat the egg and sugar together until light and fluffy. Beat in the oil. Fold in the flour mixture just enough to incorporate - there should be a few small lumps. Spread the batter on the apples and bake in a preheated 375F (190C) oven for 25 minutes. Reduce the heat to 350F (180C) and bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, 10 to 15 minutes more. Serves 4 to 6.
