If they are a little tart you could make a pie with them or some apple cobbler or apple crisp. You could even make apple cidar or applesauce with them. Or you could just eat them regular or cut them up and dip them in a yummy caramel dip. My daughter eats apples a lot. Its been awhile since I ate one.

Apple pie sounds so yummy! You can also dip apples into peanut butter, which makes for a nice snack too! The carmel idea is even better. It is positively yummy, and delicious. Another desert idea that I have seen is that they take apples, vanilla pudding, cool whip, and crushed snickers bars, and mix it all up to make kind of a desert apple salad. It is really delicious. Apples are good in salads. I really like them in a salad topped with italian dressing. They are also delicious in a fruit salad. Just put in some of your favorite fruits like apples, pineapple, oranges, etc. Then, mix it all up with some dream whip. Yummy light fruit salad.

I really like stewed apples. Carrot and apple soup is very yummy. And I can make a lovley apple cake. Try slicing up some apples, spread some cold custard on some shortcrust pastry and put the apple on and baked in the oven, very yummy as well. Apple in jelly

Just cook the apples in water until they are off. Drain the water off and mash them with a potato masher. I save the apple water and use it in soups or use it for jellies.

Make a pie, make fried apples, put some in a fruit salad, cook with pork. There are thousands of ways to use your green apples. Look in any good cookbook or use the internet.

I would make applesauce with some of them, as prefer to use applesauce and avoid oil in my baked goods. Some I would eat right out of the bag, as fruit fresh is great. You could even consider juicing them, as I enjoy drinking juice first thing in the morning. One other way I use apples is baking pies for the holidays, as my friends like to stop at my house for fresh pie.

You can give them away to your friends or you can sell them at a higher price and make some money. Or, you could even put them in a blender, and make a smoothie or apple juice. By the way, green apples are known as Granny Smith apples.

Never thought to put apples i a blender. Good ideas there.

When I think of green apples, Granny Smith with their unique tartness comes to mind. If they are fresh, they tend to be so juicy and delicious. The other thing that you might try if you have a food processor is to puree the apples some them cook them on the stove to make homemade apple sauce. Yummy!

They sound like they would be good candidates for a nice apple tart. Or you could just slice them down and drizzle them with some really good caramel... maybe a little chocolate and coconut as well.

Sound so good! You know they may also go good in oatmeal cookies. Then, you would have oatmeal raisin apple cookies. They sound so good! Well, I've add coconut, chocolate chips, and nuts all before into oatmeal cookies, so why not apples. I er!get pretty creative when it comes to Oatmeal cookies. Hint if you want to try something a tad different instead of nutmeg try adding pumpkin spice mix. I did it once by accident, and all I can say is that it was a very fortunate mistake. The result was some of the best oatmeal cookies ever!

During fall time our friends sends us bags of fresh green apples from the apple orchids. I love the smell and taste of them. She will make us apple pies and for a quick dessert she'll chop them into small pieces and fry them in butter till soft, then add cinammon and sugar as a topping. Also we use green apples in our turkey stuffing.

Yes, there is nothing better than fresh apples from the orchid. When we were little my dad would call on sales clients up in Wilcox, and a few times we would come back with fresh apples. They were delicious! Wow, I had just thought of that topping idea when I was reading the last post. I was think this would be yummy on top of pancakes or waffles for breakfast. It would also make for a great side with homemade biscuits. Come to think of it, you could even top ice cream with it. Yummy! It just depends on the weather outside. If it is super cold, you may not want ice cream. In Arizona, it is still pretty warm fall like temperatures, so ice cream still sounds like a great treat!

I use green apples a lot to cook instead of potatoes or with potatoes. I add them quartered to stews, use them when I roast chicken pieces or turkey. I also cook them and mash them and use them as a sauce for pork. There I like to add some hot chile sauce to it. YUMMY!

Well, I have never made it but I have a couple ideas of how you could make apple sauce. You may want to check my ideas against a recipe though unless you are an adventurous cook. One idea put apples with sugar and some cinnamon into a food processor, and make them into a puree. I would use the pulse setting. Just keep checking it until the apples are kind of in small puree type pieces. Then, put them in a pot, and cook over the stove. The other idea that I have would be that you would cut them up and add sugar and cinnamon then cook them onto of the stove. Once the apples are soft from cooking then you could mash them to make an applesauce.

I have tried green apples a bit, and they did not satisfy me a lot. I like normal apples more than green ones. So, did you enjoy them?

they were good. I think far better for cooking than just eating as a snack.

Ripe, juicy green Granny Smith apples with their slight tart taste are on of my favorites. Especially, fresh apples as I can imagine these must be since it is apple season. Well, I think the favorite idea is to bake up an apple pie. I must admit that sounds like a yummy idea! Everyone has such great ideas. All these delicious recipes and cooking ideas make me want to runCre out to the store to buy some apples too! I do agree that apples are very versatile. You can put them in a main dish. They are great for creating a yummy desert or snack. Apples also go great in salads. There is just so much to do with them. You could even make apple empinadas (spelling). It is kind of like an apple turnovers.

I saw that you got your apples for $1.00 a bag. That's a great bargain! You could make them into an apple pie, or you could make caramel apples. Another thing you could do is make baked apples. Core the apples and put some butter and cinnamon and sugar on them. Put them in the oven and bake them up. Or you could make up an apple salad. Chop up the apples, add some raisins, and maybe some walnuts or celery and some mayonnaise. That is what my mother used to make when I was growing up. Apples really are very versatile. Have a great day and happy myLotting!!!

Wow! That apple salad idea sounds interesting. I would never had thought of mayonaise and apples together, but maybe that would be good. You could also do apples, carrots, celery, pineapple, onions, with some italian dresing. That sound pretty good right now!

you can get some caramel and melt it down to make caramel apples. Or you can if you have marshmallows i forget the name now but make a salad with them. Make an apple pie. Or just put some peanut putter or honey on them and eat. bakes apples with cinnamon on top is what my parents used to do when i was a kid and they are yummy. Tho i never heard of having apples with potatoes interesting. Not sure i'd like that but sounds interesting. So many thing you can do with apple.

You can try some caramel apples or some chocolate covered apples with walnuts, or make a pie, a large tart, cupcakes with chopped apples in them, the list goes on. Lots of recipes are out there on the Net. I have planned to make some apple cakes, etc with some of the apples I have aquired but never get around to it. I might an apple tart soon but the plum tart I made was delicious too. I'm just not in a plum mood right now after buying the whole container of so many plums last time I went to Costco.

I love the idea of topping the apples with chocolate and nuts. That sounds so delicious! Carmel apples sound good too! You could also just mix them up with cinnamon and sugar, and eat them like that rather than baking a pie. Either way they are delicious! If you want some variations for apple pie trying adding some nuts and / or raisins they go great in the pie too! I have never tried apple cakes, but I was thinking that if you put some sugar and cinnamon on the apples then maybe just warmed them in a frying pan till the apples where tender that it could make a great topping for pancakes or waffles. This could also go great with homemade biscuits.
