Who Knew?

EXCELLENT use for apples that have passed their prime a bit: smoothies. I used one yesterday and one today and it is fabulous. I don't peel or even core them -- I just cut them into quarters (my Vitamix pulverizes everything, so the seeds, core, etc., just disappear), toss them into the blender with a few dates, a bunch of kale, and some water. I blend it all up and then when it's smooth I add a few handfuls of frozen fruit (my favorite combination is pineapple, papaya, mango, strawberry -- I get it at Costco). SUPER delicious -- the apple really adds something!

More later...

  1. I think apple dumplings is a better use for them!
