They are quite tart, much like a McIntosh in taste/texture. I figure I'll use many of them in morning green smoothies, and am thinking of using the rest in a rustic applesauce - maybe blitz the lot up in the BlendTec skins intact, then simmer them up with maple syrup, cinnamon and maybe a few other sweet and earthy spices. You guys have any other ideas for using up these (somewhat tart) apples?
On a totally separate and pity party note, kinda' bummed that I haven't been included in the VegNews Awards nominations this year. Not for cookbook author or blog. Boo. Bummed. I know the competition is stiff, and I've never won. And, I realize it's trivial, but still, not to be nominated this year makes me feel blue.
