We are not fans of delicious apples at our house.
No, I mean red or golden delicious! But we are fans of apples, until they get a little mushy, which explains why we don't care for the Delicious variety -- they are the epitome of mushy apples, not to mention they have very bitter skins.
As I mentioned down below, we have been doing our shopping via Relay Foods for the last month. The only disappointment is the produce. For some reason there is a certain smell about the produce that makes me think of an old grocery store. I don't really know how to explain it other than that.
In any case, I think little j is feeling the same way, although she hasn't said so. As a result we've ended up with some apples that are a little past their prime. I'm sort of loathe to throw them away or even compost them. But there's not really enough to make anything super interesting. Then I thought about apple turnovers, and that is my plan tonight for the overripe apples. I've found a few recipes, but I think the key is going to be the filling -- not too mushy, a nice spice, and a bit caramely -- shouldn't be too difficult!
