Apple Season

It's apple season!    Here are a few things we are doing and have done with apples.   I hope you get a chance to try a few of them.

Apple Pie Filling
Apple Pear Pie Filling
Apple Slices - canned
Apple Dumplings
Apple Tart
April's Apple Slices [Slab Pie]
Green Tomato/Apple Crisp 
Apple Pear Maple Jam
Autumn Berry [Autumn Olive/Elaeagnus] Apple Jam

One bushel of apples makes about 21 quarts of apple pie filling or canned apple slices.   I've got one bushel done [pie filling] and one more coming [canned apple slices].   Our pantry is overloaded this year, which is both a blessing and a curse.   I'm focusing on the blessing part. 


  1. Thanks for all of the ideas. Have you ever made apple sauce? I am looking for a good recipe.

    1. We make applesauce every couple of years. Easy. Just quarter the apples and cook them until soft, then run them through a sieve or chinois or food mill to get the peels/seeds out. Bottle and process. We never add anything to it.
