An Apple A Day

We've been in this house for two years now and always thought this was a crab apple tree - producing really small extremely tart apples... not so this year! We have small, but nice sized apples that are actually edible!
They are the almost the shape of golden delicious, but taste almost like granny smith apples. Anyone know what kind of apples these are??

Oh, I'll be needing some apple recipes, too... what ya got?! :)

WOW! Those are some GORGEOUS apples!!! They sure look like Granny Smiths to me!

But just reading the words "crab apple" gave me flashbacks of that nasty packsaddle I met in my parent's tree last year. *AH*

Don't know what kind they are, but how nice to find this little treasure in your yard. I love apples any way ... pie, crisp, dumplings, you name it. Good luck on your search.

How fabulous! I like granny smith apples and would be so excited! My daughter really wants to plant an apple tree. Maybe in the fall.

They look delicious!

Those look so yummy. My favorite apple treat is snicker salad. Just cut some apples (about 6) into bite-size pieces, add a bag of mini snicker's and a tub of whipped cream, mix it all together, refridgerate for a little while, and enjoy!

Mmm, those apples look good! What about a good old apple pie? That is my favorite thing to make with apples. Or you can make homemade applesauce.

The easiest way (I think!) is to peel your apples and then cut them into chunks. Then toss the apple chunks into your crockpot and cook them on low (no need to add water or anything else) until they're mushy. Then you just mush them and mash them until they're a consistency you like. You can add cinnamon and/or sugar if you like--but we just eat it plain.
