Now That You Picked All ‘Dem Apples, What Do You Do With Them?

Probably one of the best things about apple picking is that it gives everyone the chance to go farm to table, but if you are an amateur it can be overwhelming.  I remember the first time I ever went, all I heard were the farmers calling out names of apple trees. “Fuji over here!” “McIntosh over there!”  I was like “Errr…” “Umm….” The only Macintosh I was familiar with was the one I type on, and the only Fugees I knew were the ones who sang. (And then the song “Ready or Not”  was stuck in my head for the rest of the day).  So, ready or not, I just started picking!  The next thing I knew I had 90 dollars worth of apples and not a clue what to do with them.  Well, if you have found yourself in this predicament…  I have come to answer your apple prayers. Here are some things you can do with your apples based on their variety!

 

apple-chips

If you happened to have picked Fuji or Empire Apples then make Apple Chips! These types of apples are very common at the orchards, and they are the ideal kinds for drying.  Fuji will give you a crisp yet tender chip.  Empire will give you a mild sweet flavor with a touch of tart.
