Delicious Recipes to Make with Apples That Are Going Bad
Apple pie is a classic dessert that can be made with apples that are going bad. Start by preheating your oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Peel and core the apples, then cut them into thin slices. Place the slices in a bowl and mix with sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and lemon juice. Grease a 9-inch pie plate and line it with one of the pastry crusts. Pour the apple mixture into the crust and top with the other pastry crust. Crimp the edges together and cut several slits in the top for steam to escape. Bake for 40 minutes or until golden brown.
