Make apple-custard pies with eggs and cream and applesauce.I just did a split last week. Now I have TWO hives of bees!
:-) well done on the bees! my progress there has got bogged down in book. apple - custard?
Apple Crumble? Or apple + some other fruit (e.g blackberry) crumble? I've had that with pureed apples a few times and it is good. The good bit about having the apple pureed is that you can bottle it and it keeps for a long while. My parents used to do that all the time.
I think it might work with rhubarb or some berry fruit. It needs body. I think it might work for apple jelly (as in clear bred-spreading stuff) if I drain it through muslin. I freeze bags of pie-apple (cooked with a minimum of water, some green apples, so it retains texture and shape) every autumn - but added too much water to this, and next thing I knew I had mush.
Send it to a journalist in America who thinks good apple sauce is the food of the Gods and will happily eat it?
grin Come and fetch it!
Good on pancakes. Good in any other kind of cake, use it instead of the liquid in the recipe.
Use it in baking. Google "substitute apple sauce".MLR
