3 Ways to Cook Up Apples

A local grocery store had Gala apples on sale for $0.37 per pound!! Needless to say I bought about 15 pounds! What do you do with 15 pounds of apples? Here is what we will be eating for weeks to come:

– Apple jelly
– Dried apples
– Apple pies

Now I am sure there are tons more ways to use fresh apples, but these three will best serve us. Here is how to prepare apple jelly, dried apples, and our apple pie recipe.

Apple Jelly
You will need:
1 – Ball No-Sugar Needed Fruit Pectin
1 cup unsweetened apple juice
Fresh apples to yield 4 cups prepared, about 16 medium apples
4-6 Half Pint Jars with Lids and Bands

Optional:
Up to 3 cups sugar
Up to 1 cup honey
Artificial sweetener to taste

Follow instructions inside Ball No-Sugar Needed Fruit Pectin

Dried Apples
You will need a food dehydrator to make these and as many apples as you want!

Peel and core apples. Slice apples in to rings and place onto dehydrator. Turn on dehydrator and let dry overnight. *Tip: It is very important to get all of the peel off the apple because when the peel dries it becomes very sharp and can cut your mouth.

Apple Pie
You will need:
3-4 large apples
1 Tbs. Cinnamon
2-3 packets artificial sweetener
2 uncooked pie crusts
Butter

Peel, core, and dice apples. Toss them in a bowl with cinnamon and sweetener. Pour into bottom pie crust. Top with pats of butter. Lay second pie crust on top and seal edges. Poke top crust with a fork a few times. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour.
