Apples are Super Foods for Nomads. My husband doesnt like them. I dont fancy them either(a black dot for me any way). But while visiting family I was given 6 apples. Any ideas as to what to do with them?

Thanks!

I feel the same way about apples, ac. So I stew them with pure maple syrup, a small cinnamon stick(black dot toxin), lemonade fruit juice (I have my own tree of lemonades), strips of fresh tangerine/mandarin/orange rind, dried apricots, fresh pears, and raisins/prunes. It's actually more delicious served cold the next day with dollops of thick creamy yoghurt, or with properly thick cream. And I use 6 apples to 130ml maple syrup. (The rest of the ingredients in lesser amounts.)

Hmmmm , that sounds interesting, thanks eh! OK question: do you peel the apple? And what is the texture of all the ingredients once they are done? Approximately how long do you stew? Just to get a rough idea...

Do apples roast well?

Hubby loves the roasted almonds & macadamia nuts with raisins I make him. He gets thro it in one sitting though! And that's 250gms each of the nuts and raisins . Ah my beloved B

Peeled or unpeeled apples are fine. I add the other fruit pieces only after the apples have cooked for about ten minutes as I like the fresh pears slightly firm not mushy . The dried apricots are great once they dissolve into the stew and their flavours marry with the citrus rind/juice really well. I tend to hover over the stew so that the apples and pears do not disappear. The prunes generally dissolve.

I'd say no more than 30 minutes but honestly I've never timed it.

You could stuff your apples with your nut and raisin mix (add butter and maple syrup to the mixture to taste), and bake these as apples bake very well indeed. (An unpeeled dish.) That would stretch it  further for your greedy nomad. I too eat a lot but I am, of course, very loving with myself about it all

I don't eat apples straight up either, something about the sweetness and the crunchy texture together that is sensitive to my teeth. I cut them into small pieces (with skin) and saute with ghee, currants and nutmeg. Maple syrup gets added after cooking. The apple pieces are still intact so not to the point of stewing, but that sounds nice too. This goes down much better than a raw apple. I also make fresh apple juice a couple times a week.

teri,
Only the other day I stumbled across some interesting and very recent British research concerning apples' anti inflammatory effects. According to the research, Juice concentrate is waaaay better than whole apples- the latter apparently don't really display any significant anti inflammatory benefits whereas the concentrated juice (cloudy juice) is powerful. Considering the number of apples that make up the volume of a glass I'm not surprised. And it's a further reminder to eat a lot.   Keep juicing!

Thanks for this valuable tidbit, eh. Maybe I'll juice more often now. It is a superfood (not diamond) for Explorers too

Baked apples stuffed with nuts, raisens, ghee, and maybe a bit of cardomom would be great. Cinnamon would also be nice except not for Nomads. I also think I remember apples in some curries.

oh yes gulfcoast guy, apples and bananas are good in curries -not together tho  
Also AC, what about making a relish or chutney??
Apples go with onions, spices, herbs, mushrooms, meats, tomatoes, lettuces, cheeeses, sweetners, fats, other fruits / dried fruits, and citrus.

Apple pie?  You gotta try it.  I know it sounds so...American...but it's really good.

All interesting and yummy, thank you very much!

My beloved likes to snack while he reads lying down. He shovels cart load of stuff with one hand while the other flips the pages We are voracious readers, oh but he's a voracious snacker too ! So with this in mind what can you suggest with the apples?

If I had a dehydrator, I could make apple chips I suppose. But I dont have one . So I was thinking roasting slivers of apple. Would it turn crisp at all...?

you can make apple fritters to eat warm or cold. They look like skinny donuts. Peel and core the apple, slice into thin rings, dip in a runny or a thick batter that is made of egg, compliant flour and water and then deep fry in a light olive oil. Don't fuss with the batter - even a plain, runny flour and water mix with lumps will do.
