Red Delicious Apples.

Someone has given me way to many red apples. Alone is just fine, but I was wondering if anyone had any ideas of what I could do with them. I know they arent baking apples so I"m sorta stuck on ways that they could be used. TIA

  1. Dublin Coddle! I made it twice recently, and it's my husband's new favorite dish. I think it's sometimes referred to as a stew, but the consistency of it is more like a hash, and I wouldn't change that. I wouldn't like it as much as a stew.

    2 boiled cubed russet potatoes
    9-10 strips cooked bacon, broken into pieces
    2 red apples, chopped
    2 cups smoked sausage (I think it's actually better with bratwurst)
    1 onion, chopped

    Cube and boil the potatoes in a large pot, and cook the bacon in a skillet large enough to hold the entire dish. Set aside bacon. Add apples, sausage, and onion to the bacon grease. The juice from the apples will caramelize the onions. Add the boiled potatoes and broken bacon back to the dish, and heat thoroughly for a few more minutes. If it's dry, add a few teaspoons of either (1) an alcoholic apple cider/beer, (2) regular apple juice, or (3) chicken broth, depending on how sweet you prefer. The sweet and savory of this dish is divine!

    1. Forgot to mention, I peel the potatoes too.
