This recipe needs advance preparation!
Not a recipe, just a useful idea for using the glut of apples you seem to get in the Autumn.
I have made dried apple slices as a way to use lots of apples but to be honest, you can only eat so many of them.
Whilst there is a lot of fiddling about; peeling and trimming, the benefit is that you probably have organic apples if they have come from your garden.
I was staggered to learn from a Kentish orchard owner that apples are sprayed once a week until they are picked! That really can't be great for you.
- Wash, peel and trim the apples removing any bruised, marked or bad parts.
- Keeping them in water as you process them appears to stop then turning too brown
- Cut them into quarters and place in a bowl and add the lemon juice
- Mix well then place them on a baking tray.
- Freeze them in the fast freeze section of your freezer if it has such a thing.
- The next day, remove them from the tray and in small amounts, bag and seal them in freezer bags.
- Stored in the freezer they should keep for 6 to 10 months, especially if the bags are properly sealed.
Apples, good, bad and ugly
