Ever wondered what to do with those mushy and bruised apples lying about in your house?
This has happened to the best of us when we brought a large number of apples and discovered that just a small number of them were mushy and soft, making them unpalatable to eat. So, rather than returning it to the fruit vendor, we left it in the fridge and never thought about it again. It caused them to decay, wasting both the apples and our money.
But fear not, those mushy apples can be used in a variety of ways to create and prepare something fresh and even spectacular and amazing. We've put together this guide to show you how to make the most of those bruised and mushy apples.
You can easily put those apples to good use by preparing apple sauce. Yeah, applesauce tastes great but it tastes even better when it is homemade.
For this you would need-
• 3-4 apples chopped
• Cinnamon stick
• 1 tsp lemon juice
• 1 tsp salt
• ½ cup water
• T tbsp brandy (optional)
Bring all of these ingredients to a boil in a saucepan, then reduce to a low heat and cover for 30 minutes. Remove the cinnamon sticks from the pot, drain it, and store it. If you desire a puree consistency, you can blend the applesauce in a blender. This applesauce can be used in cakes, pancakes, donuts, and other meals as well. It can improve the flavour of any basic dish.
