    oooh smolder, I bought filo dough, perhaps I could cut them and make 'cups' in muffin tins and bake them that way? I'll have to experiment this weekend :) They sell those already baked and formed that way but I have all I need, so I might give that a try too!

    We love apples in this house, in any form :)

    Nancy, lol. It's always those darn men that complicate things! I never add sugar to my applesauce either, just the applebutter...and I'm playing around with that to see how little I can add before the spices overwhelm it and make it bitter.

    I recently found a recipe for individual "apple pies" baked in a muffin tin that supposedly freeze well. I'll be testing those out with the apples at this price! I generally buy 9-12 lbs at a time so I always have plenty to work with, too!

    smolder, I have mixed apples before when making applesauce but hubby is stuck on straight up Fuji for the applesauce LOL.

    It's so sweet, no sugar needed at all - it really tastes wonderful.

    I'm thinking of taking some of the apples, cooking them to slightly firm, lots of cinnamon and making a filo wrapped apple treat of sorts. I bought 5 bags at 3lbs each so I have plenty to work with :)

    Nancy-Thanks for all the food saver tips and tricks the other day. And regarding the applesauce, you should try a combo of different kinds of apples. It really adds another dimension to the flavor of the applesauce. I used to use only fuji's and now I almost always use a combo of fuji's, gala's and red delicious apples. I like mine thicker and smooth, so I drain off the applejuice to use in other recipes and I use the immersion blender until I pretty much have baby food. :)

    wildfrenchrose-here is the original recipe my friend sent me for crock pot apple butter.
    "Approx. 3 lbs apples
    3 cups sugar
    2 tsp. cinnamon
    1 tsp. nutmeg
    ½ tsp. allspice
    ½ tsp. cloves Dash of salt ¾ cup water or apple cider Fill crock pot ¾ full with peeled, cored and sliced apples. Add remaining ingredients and stir. Cover and cook on low overnight, or until the apple butter is of desired consistency. May use an immersion blender to smooth. If there’s too much liquid, remove lid and cook on high until thickened, stirring often."

    I don't use the water, as I like my apple butter thicker, and I use WAY less sugar. Approximately 1/3-1/2 cup per lb of apples. I only measured the amount of apples my crock pot could hold once, and then after that I just approximated based on that. Oh, I also don't peel the apples. They cook for so long and I use an immersion blender at the end, so you can't really tell that they were left on. I do peel them for applesauce though.

    wildfrenchrose, no I make applesauce but if I continued to cook it down I could turn it into apple butter :) I make the applesauce in a large pot on the stove top, on low, just sliced apples and lots and lots of cinnamon -yum! Then once the apples are cooked soft, I pour it all into a large bowl and break it up with a serving fork - hubby likes it chunky.

    The fuji apples are so sweet, nothing is needed at all and we enjoy it as a dessert as much as a side dish.

    Just wanted to put this out there- I have had several sets of friends complaining of food moths after shopping strictly at Aldi's.eeee

  • wildfrenchrose Mar 20, 2013

    Nancy, do you have a good apple butter recipe you'd like to share? I make mine in the crock pot, cooked all day, so have just been throwing stuff in "to taste" since I don't measure/weigh my apples--too much work for me...

  • Nancy Mar 20, 2013

    LOL, yup, that's what I was looking for sdoss, less work more results ;)

  • sdoss1 Mar 20, 2013

    Nancy, good to hear the apples at Aldi are bigger. Less peeling for you :)
