Apples Recipes (non-dessert, non-baked, non-salad, sans pork)

I have a big bag of apples but these days not much of a sweet tooth. I know they go great with pork and/or in salads, but would love some new ideas -- perhaps involving stir-frying / sauteeing / soup-making?

  1. Apple Chutney, Fried Cinnemon Apples (a family favorite), Turkey Soup with Apple chunks, Oatmeal with Apples (what we're having this morning), or stir-fry them in with some chicken, zucchini, and sesame seeds.

    1. they're great sliced in a grilled cheddar sandwich. also pair very well with walnuts and bleu cheese.

        Sort of along this same line, Bobby Flay has a recipe for turkey burgers with brie in the middle and you put apples on top... it sounds really different and it is, but it's also extremely good.

      2. You can also saute them with shredded red cabbage, sliced sweet onions and red wine, perhaps a touch of caraway if you like caraway.

        1. One of my favorites is a Daniel Boulud recipe for cauliflower soup that includes apples in the soup and as a garnish. It's quite easy to make. If it appeals to you, it's in "Cooking With Daniel Boulud."

            That's a great book. I have made a number of the soups. And of course the Sea Bass in (something cheaper than) Barolo.

            If the OP has the Zuni cookbook, try the savory apple charlotte. It's baked in the oven, but I assume you just meant not the standard baked apple.

          2. I put a few slices of green pear or apple (as well as thicker sliced, de-seeded cucumber) in Asian style fish soups. They should be as crunchy as possible.
