Title: Eating Apple recipes?
Post by: caracroft on October 18, 2013, 10:16:32 am
Hi this year I have an abundance of eating apples and would like to use them in recipes but all the ones I have are for cooking apples.

Any good recipes for apple sauce, apple chutney, apple relish etc that you can use eating apples in?

Thanks  :thumbsup:

Not a chutney, but I love this recipe.  Pressed apple terrine.  It's amazing. 


Peel, core and slice about 8-10 apples.  Slice with a mandolin so they're nice and thin.
Melt about 125g butter in a pan with a glug of apple brandy.
Paint the inside of a terrine or loaf tin with the butter and brandy mix.
Put in a layer of apples.  Paint.
Repeat until the apples are layered to about 1.5-2 cm above the rim of the tin.
Cover with a double layer of foil and cook at 160C for 90 mins.  Take it out, take off the foil and press the apples down with a spatula.  Cover with a layer of baking parchment and put back in the oven at 200C for 20 mins.  Let it cool.
Make a pastry base the same size as the top of your loaf tin and bake it.  Leave it to cool.
When you're ready, turn the terrine onto the pastry and slice.

We have had an abundance of eating apples this year too.  In the process of juicing them as there are just too many to eat/cook/bake.  From one of the trees we have got some beautiful pink juice.  Have bottled and frozen it.

I have always used eating apples for pretty well all my apple recipes.  Only use cooking apples if I am doing baked apple of some description

I've made lots of apple chutneys  from this site. In the middle of a green tomato chutney (3rd batch) as I type.

Chop some peeled, cored apples and add them to cake mix. Gives a nice texture. My mum's friend used to make Dorset Apple Cake and I think that was with eating apples.
