A plea for help!

Yesterday Ben and I went to Lynd Fruit Farm and picked ourselves LOADS of the most delicious Rome apples I've ever tasted. This was my first ever apple-picking adventure, and I've learned two important lessons:

  • Climbing a tree at 32 is a different experience from climbing one at 12, and

  • 16 pounds of apples is just a ridiculous amount of fruit. Seriously.

  • Between us we've already eaten 4 out of hand, and 7 more went into the Joy of Cooking's lovely Apple Crisp. I've set aside 8 lbs. for jelly, and we're still left with ... well, let's just say

    A Great Many Apples.

    Which brings me to my plea for help...

    I know there are some good apple recipes rattling around in your noggins ... could you toss some my way?


    • Apple Upside-down Biscuit Cake

      Ignore the "biscuit" misnomer. It's more like a spice cake.

    • Thanks, Sarah! That looks really good...and the slight element of danger involved in turning it out of the pan makes me want it even more!

    • maybe a galette? or applesauce, if you're so inclined? do you have a dehydrator? my mama dries trays of apples every year. they are delicious.
