Every year my aunt shares with us the abundance from her very productive apple tree. She always goes through quite a bit of trouble to make sure I have all the apples I can possibly tote back home! But in the end RancherMan & I hauled back all we could fit into our small car. I’ll not let any of them go to waste – I set out to preserve all those beautiful apples! It was a lot of work but after some time in the kitchen preserving them we have plenty of apple deliciousness in the pantry. Want to see some of the things I was able to do with them?
5 Recipes To Preserve Apples
This recipe is straightforward and canning requires just a 20-minute stint in a water-bath canner. Now I can make homemade apple pie in minutes!
This is the simplest way to preserve fresh apples. Peel/core/slice them and chunk them into a slow cooker to cook down. Then canning them is easy! I’ve made regular unsweetened to enjoy and also use in my baking, and Cinnamon/Vanilla flavored applesauce too!
A delicious byproduct of making applesauce – the apple cider. It’s easy to can too. In the cold winter months enjoy a steaming cup of cider stirred with a cinnamon stick to warm you from the inside out.
Slices of peeled/cored apples are sprinkled with cinnamon & sugar and then dehydrated. The result is a delicious, crunchy, sweet apple treat!
If you have excess applesauce it’s easy to make them into fruit rollups. Just spread them on the dehydrator trays & dry until no longer tacky. Then cut into strips & roll. I’ve made regular and cinnamon/sugar rollups. And they’re both delicious!
