Apples, Apples, Apples

Here’s a few recipes of what Harper and I did with all those beautiful apples.  When you have barrels of them it’s always fun to come up with ideas on what to do with them all.

Ingredients

  • 4-5 apples; sliced thin about 1/8 inch thick
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon

Directions

Preheat oven to 200 degrees

Slice your apples with a mandolin. You want them to be about 1/8 inch thick. Then place the apple slices on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Make sure not to overlap. Sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar and bake for about 3 hours or until they are crispy. A good clue that your chips are done is when the edges start to curl up a bit. Let them cool completely before eating or storing in an air-tight container.

Apple Butter

Recipe courtesy of Tiffani Thiessen

[ezcol_2fifth]

Ingredients

  • 6 ½ pounds apples, peeled, cored and sliced
  • ¾ cup packed brown sugar
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 ½ tablespoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon ground ginger
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla bean paste

Directions

Place the apples in a slow cooker. Then add the sugars, cinnamon, ginger, salt and vanilla bean paste and mix well. Cook on low for about 9-10 hours making sure to stir every hour or so. The apple butter should be thick and dark brown. Then transfer to a blender, being careful, as it will be hot, and puree until smooth

Cover and refrigerate for up to two weeks. Can be enjoyed on toast or smothered on cheese. I like a combination of both.
