19 Ways to Use Old, Mushy, or Bruised Apples
If you find yourself with a less-than-stellar bunch of apples, or extra-soft apples that have been sitting around for a few too many days, don’t worry — it happens to the best of us. Don’t toss them away — not even the ones with the nasty bruises.
Apples that are past their prime might not be great for biting into as an afternoon snack or for a recipe with visible apple slices, but they’ve still got plenty of flavor. Older apples are great for baking (especially if they’re one of the varieties best for baking). As the apples break down during cooking, the remaining liquid is released and the natural sugars concentrate, transforming them into something remarkably delicious. Here are 19 smart uses for your not-so-shapely apples.
