I'm doing Weight Watchers and saw a recipe the other day for baking the apples until crisp, like chips. Then you can store them in ziplock bags and eat them like chips.
I belive the directions said to slice thin, like chips, place on cookie sheet lightly sprayed with pam, bake at 250 degrees for 40 mins or until crisp. It also said to sprinkle with splenda and cinnamon. I bet they'ld be yummy!And healthier than potato chips!!
I just got 24 lbs of apples today. I like that idea of the apple chips. I might try and make some of those before the kids eat all of them!
(We had 30 lbs of oranges 2 weeks ago- there are about 2 oranges left!)
You could send them to my house - they'll last a week, tops!
I've frozen oranges before- you just have to peel and section them, then toss them onto a sheet pan to freeze. Once they're frozen, toss them into a ziploc bag.
For the apples you could do applesauce or canned apples. It's really not that hard actually. You'll just have to peel and chop them then cook them. If you want applesauce, just chop them finer and cook them longer.
If you want to can them, you'll either have to get some jars, or just put them into plastic containers and let them cool, then toss them into the freezer.
