You can also make apple fruit leather. It's a great way to preverse apples and tastes great with cheese later. To do it all you have to do is make your apple sauce. I use gallon icecream bucket lids and pour the apple sauce into them then place them in my food dryer. Dry it until the leather isn't tacky. if you dry it to much it will crumble. It takes about 4 to 8 hours. also you want to use a little pam to grease the lids so the leather is easy to get out of them. All you need is the fruit no extra sugar.
I did this as an experiment when I was grilling......it was so yummy! Spray a sheet of foil with nonstick spray, chunk up sweet potatoes and apples, dot with butter and sprinkle with brown sugar, grill until sweet potatoes are soft....oh it is so good, and you control the butter the sugar, it really takes very little.
4 cups peeled, cored, sliced apples 1 tablespoon white sugar 2 teaspoon lemon juice 3/4 cup uncooked oatmeal old fashioned or instant 1/4 cup flour 2 tablespoons brown sugar 2 tablespoons melted butter 1 heaping teaspoon cinnamon 1/4 teaspoon salt low-fat frozen vanilla yogurt
Preheat the oven to 350°F.
Place the apples evenly in the bottom of a baking dish coated with cooking spray.
To make the crisp, in a bowl, combine the remaining ingredients and stir until the mixture resembles of course meal. Top the apples evenly with the oat mixture.
Bake 350°F for 30 minutes.
Serve warm with a scoop of frozen vanilla yogurt on top.

Proud of myself for walking to and from the orchard (Almost three miles) not the mention around and picking, then carting back a bushel of apples. Yes 50 pounds of apples!
So, aside from three pies to be dropped off at my grandparents homes, any great and healthy apple recipes?
I typically make a huge bunch of sugar free apple sauce for the winter but I still have another month and can go get more (not to mention a decent workout toting them). So ideas anyone?
