A family at church gave us a big box of apples a while back. Slowly we've been eating them and using them for cooking/baking, but it was time to take care of the rest before they went bad. Yesterday I set out to the task and here's what I ended up with.
I peeled, cored, cut, boiled, strained, mashed...you name it! We've got 2 jars of apple juice, 2 jars of apple sauce, 5 bags of apples cut up and ready for pies or crisps, 4 mini jar pies plus one jar crisp & apple fruit snacks. Phew!
Unfortunately the fruit snacks didn't turn out. They didn't have any flavor (the recipe calls for juice concentrate) and the consistancy was kinda weird. I want to give it another try though. If they turn out I'll let you know and share the recipe!
