It’s apple season

I was told that there was a good harvest on apples this year and so i am making some suggestions that can use a lot of apples but are easy and tasty.

A great fall snack is dehydrated apples/ apple chips.

First suggestion is get a dehydrator, they are very easy to use and can you sure can use a lot of apples. I had a apple peeler and it cored and sliced the apples. I then would put the apples in either fruit fresh or lemon and water to keep them from turning brown. When you have a bowl full put them on paper towel to take water off and put on the trays of the hydrator and let dehydrate for three to four hours. I would fill plastic bags with these and they can stay in dry area or can be frozen which you prefer. My grandkids loved them and wanted them more than sweet treats.

Second suggestion is apple pie filling, it is just peeled apples, water, sugar, cooked until cooked through and measure out about 2 cups at a time. That is enough for a pie or apple crisp and many other things. All you have to do is add cinnamon and nutmeg.

You can put this in plastic bags or containers and freeze.

Another great apple recipe if you have more of a treat is apple fritters.

Apple Fritters:


1 1/3 cups all purpose flour

2 Tbsp granulated sugar

2 tsp. Baking Powder

1/4 tsp salt

1 egg

3/4 cup milk


In mixing bowl put flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Beat egg in small bowl until frothy. I add egg and milk to flour mixture. Mix together. Here is where you may have to adjust things. Cut apples in pieces and dust with a little flour and add to batter. Batter should be thick enough to coat the piece of fruit. If too thin, it runs off. Add more flour to thicken or more milk to thin. When using small pieces of of fruit like raspberries or drain fruit cocktail batter. Has to be thin enough to fold in fruit yeah thick enough to hold together. Drop into hot fat 375° browned each side. Drain on paper towels. Sprinkle with sugar and enjoy.
