36 apples for $2
Today, there were a only a dozen free apples at the market for the hens. I took them. Not the ones above. He mentioned the box was for apple butter and $2/box. Cheap! Frugal eating! I snapped them up. Now, I realize I have to do something with them...lol. I really like nice crispy dehydrated apples. An apple pie would be nice. I don't really want apple butter.
There are a few hours before I have to make this decision before the bruises develop into a more serious problem and I lost more of these.
My pie I make for myself is just pie filling--apples, sugar, cinnamon, and flour. None of this is ever measured. There will be no crust. I don't need the crust and no one will be judging my pie-making skills.
One thing I do for myself and no one else--I don't peel the apples. It gives me more fiber and pectin and maybe not too much pesticide. Also, instead of apples slices, I make chunks of each slice so the apple peel will not be in huge pieces.
Maybe a half dozen of these will be saved for eating. Exbf (still) will be glad to take them.
Getting these cheaply was thrilling. I figure there is probably $8 worth of apples, at least.
They are all crispy except for the bruises on the apples. Understand, these are fresh and edible, just mishandled. None are old and soft.
Do you ever buy apples past their prime? What do you make with them? Have you ever made just the apple filling and eaten it with no crust?
