What to do with Mushy Apples?
Mushy apples can be a bit of a bummer, but there are still plenty of ways to use them! Here are some ideas for what to do with mushy apples.
One of the most popular uses for mushy apples is to make apple sauce. This is a great way to use up any apples that have gone past their prime. All you need to do is peel and core the apples, then cook them in a pot with some water until they’re soft. Add sugar or spices if desired, then mash or blend the mixture until it reaches your desired consistency.
Mushy apples can also be used in baked goods like pies, muffins, and cakes. The texture of the apples will break down during baking, so you won’t even notice that they were mushy to begin with. Plus, the natural sweetness of the apples will add flavor and moisture to whatever you’re baking.
If you don’t feel like cooking or baking, you can always add your mushy apples to smoothies. Just peel and core the apples before adding them to your blender along with other ingredients like yogurt, milk, and honey. You can also freeze the apples before blending them for an extra-cold smoothie.
