How to cook the apple without any waste

How to cook the apple without any waste
By Florence-Léa Siry from Chic Frigo Sans Fric

Shopping tips

Who can resist the classic autumn pleasure of apples?! In Quebec, there are at least 18 varieties of apples, all equally irresistible. But did you know that each variety has its unique qualities? Some apples are delicious to eat all year long, some are best in season and others to use in recipes from appetizers to the most decadent desserts.

Have you discovered summer apples? You can’t buy them at the grocery store, but you can find them at some kiosks at your favourite public markets. These small, yellow-green tangy-tasting apples are delicious with salty dishes or dipped in creamy caramel. Yum! On the other hand, they’re difficult to keep and quickly become quickly mealy. Use them at their best by making a delicious compote for comforting winter meals.

Fall apples are sweet, crunchy and juicy. They can be kept in a cool, dark, dry place for up to six months. Make the most of the fall by buying big baskets of apples from your favourite producer so you can enjoy some crunch in your lunch all winter long.

Conservation tips

Did you scoop up the bounty of the harvest at a good price from your favourite merchant… but you’re not sure how to store them properly?

There are two things you can do:

The first is to store them in a plastic container in a cool, dark place. Wrap each apple with a piece of newspaper to absorb moisture and prevent mould. They’ll keep well for several months.

The second The second method was used by our grandmothers: a tray and wine corks to keep fruit flies away. Place the apples on a tray with corks from your empty wine bottles in between. Your apples will keep for a few weeks.

Cutting tip

Since exposure to air makes apple slices oxidize, it’s best to soak them in lemon or apple juice to prevent browning.

Are your apples mealy and less appealing to eat? If so, it’s a good time to use up your flour, vegetable oil and autumnal spices. Cut your apples into rings and coat them with bread crumbs and spices to make delicious apple fritters.

Before discarding

Collect the apple peel and undesirable pieces to turn into bite-sized treats. Simply roll them in pastry dough and bake. Or add bacon for a sweet and savoury taste sensation!
