    Default Green apples

    Friend had a branch break. Brought over 4 grocery bags of green apples
    about the size of a racquetball ball.

    Guess we look like the type that can find use for most anything, but
    this has me stumped. Made wine, juice and cinnamon apples last
    year.Haven't even had time to bottle it yet. (flood fight)

    Applesauce is too time intensive, and these are way too green anyway.

    Suppose I could give them to a friend that feeds deer, but he doesn't
    usually ask until they are ripe.

    Any easy to prepare ideas? We are just putting the house back together,
    so nothing too labor intensive.

    Thanks

    Mark

    You could use them to make pectin. Other than that, pickling might be
    the best use. Both are probably more labor-intensive than you want.

    for me, the answer to this sort of thing is
    to find a good spot in a garden and bury them.

    you did say minimal process time.
    the worms will take care of them
    eventually (year or two).

    Too much prepping, and would end up filling the freezer with sub par
    slices or pies.
