10 Ways to Use Apples

Posted on

If you’ve been apple picking, or if you’ve simply stocked up on the season’s bounty, you’ll have plenty of apples to spare. How can you use them all before you they go bad? Take our advice, and use all your delicious apples creatively, so you can extend the life of your fresh stockpile.


  • Apple Sauce
    It’s not only a great snack for children, apple sauce has many applications for baking, especially creating texture without overusing oil.

  • Apple Butter
    Pile some on your pancakes, or spread it on toast. Spicy apple butter is amazing!

  • Stewed Apples
    By making stewed apples ahead of time, you have a fresh topping for oatmeal – even a quick side for ice cream at night!

  • Baked Apples
    Stuff them with raisins and bake in a pan with water for a healthy dessert. Serve with ice cream for a not-so-healthy dessert.

  • Apple Slinky
    Use one of these to make a snack your kids will love.

  • Apple Pie
    There’s no substitute for this American classic!

  • On Sandwiches
    Thin apple slices go really well with tuna salad – why not try apple with bacon?

  • In Muffins
    Small, diced apples bring life and moisture to any basic muffin recipe.

  • Dry Them
    Slice, core and dry apples a low oven, or a dehydrator. Sprinkle with cinnamon for an even more tasty snack that will last for a while.

  • With Almond Butter
    Nothing fancy – just basic apples and almond butter. A fuss-free afternoon snack!
