My best use for apples is to cook pork chops under them. (My method results in soggy pork chops that taste like Rosemary and whatever else was in the pan with them.)
I read a recipe that involved mixing ground chicken with apples and spinach to make chicken nuggets.
I imagine the mixing chopped apples with squash, carrot, or sweet potato would make a lovely mashed side. (Or mashed topping for a fall casserole.)
I like this recipe. http://www.applerecipes.us/apple-cake.html I replace the flour with whole-wheat and replace the sugar with 1/4 cup brown sugar, I think. It also involves using lemon juice on the apple, but I don't think it's too important.
Thanks for the recipes. I'll also share my no-cook apple uses:
- Sliced apple on a tortilla with a tablespoon of reduced fat peanut butter. YUM! - Add chopped apples, raisins, and a tablespoon of reduced fat peanut butter to plain cooked oatmeal.

I try to eat an apple every day. My favorite one is a refrigerated Fuji apple. It is so juicy and sweet. I also love apple pie, or better yet a thin-crusted apple tart, also known as Galette. Oh, it is so good.
I agree with Snoopy1960, home-made chunky applesauce is so much better then purchased apple sauce.
Since apple season has started I'm on my annual quest for EASY and somewhat HEALTHY recipes using fresh apples. If you have a good recipe pleases post it- I already have a bag of apples I picked on Monday and I want to get cooking!
