Few tips how to process apples


One of the most common apple processing methods is to make an excellent cider. But if you don’t mind putting a little bit extra effort in, you can use them differently, maybe even better. We are talking about apple strudels and other pastries or desserts which are absolutely delicious. But what about trying little different recipes this year? You may discover entirely different uses and you will love them.

Caramel apples

To make this wonderful dessert/sauce you will need 1 kg of apples. Peel them and remove the cores and then cut into small pieces. Spread the pieces on a baking sheet and bake at 180 °C until soft. Mix occasionally. Meanwhile, melt 150 g of butter in a saucepan. Put 150 g of cane sugar into the melted butter and let it caramelize. Stir the baked apples into this mixture and blend well. While it is still hot, fill glasses with the mixture, cover them and turn upside down. After cooling, store in a cool and dark place.
