Last fall I was given 2 bushel baskets full of apples. I froze some slices for pie and boiled the peels for juice and made apple jelly, but mostly I made applesauce. I made alot of applesauce, so much so we are sick of it. I still have two dozen pints left and five quarts.

I gave alot away to my mom and I made applesauce bread. I even put some applesauce in some cinnamon rolls I made. Any ideas what to do with the rest?? We are sick of eating the stuff.

Applesauce ice cream!
Posted by eyesroll in Cooking & Baking Group

A big hit with the toddler...(then again, we asked her if there was any ice cream she didn't like, she replied: "I don't like tree ice cream.") Perfect for a warm fall day.

Heat one cup whole milk, one cup heavy cream to 170 F. Meanwhile, beat four egg yolks until they're blended and bright yellow. Add a ladleful of the heated milk mixture to the yolks, and stir thoroughly. Add the tempered eggs to the remainder of the cream, whisking constantly to keep the eggs from curdling. Make sure the eggs spend at least 1 minute at 170 to kill any nasties. Remove from heat, add 1/2 cup honey and 1/2 tsp vanilla. Refrigerate until cold, then freeze in the ice-cream maker according to manufacturer instructions.

Meanwhile, either make applesauce or use a commercial chunky brand -- minimally sweetened is better. I used aging Fuji apples, a little lemon and cinnamon, and no sugar. I think a tarter variety would have been better, but that's what I had. Make sure the applesauce is cold.

When the ice cream is done churning, fold in the applesauce. I used about a cup and a half for this recipe, but you can use as much or as little as you want. My ice-cream maker has a pouring spout, so I added the applesauce and let the paddle mix it in.

Transfer to a freezer container.

Serve by itself or with some simple cookies -- butter or shortbread works nicely.

Enjoy!

Debi's Apple Sauce Pie
This lightly spiced, custard-like pie is a nice addition to the holiday table. Applesauce is beaten into the egg mixture for a pumpkin pie-like texture.
Ingredients:

• 1 pastry for a single crust pie
• 1 16-oz jar applesauce
• 1/2 cup evaporated milk
• 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
• 5 eggs
• 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
• 3/4 cup sugar (or sugar substitute for baking can be used)

Method:

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line a 9-inch deep-dish pie plate with pastry; flute edge. Set aside. In a large mixing bowl whisk together apple sauce, evaporated milk, cinnamon, and eggs. Mix flour and sugar together, then mix into apple mixture until well combined. Pour into lined pie plate. Place pie plate in a shallow baking pan and place on middle rack in oven. Bake for 45 to 50 minutes or until toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack.
Notes:

Cool completely and serve with a nice vanilla/cinnamon ice cream or whipped cream. It's a wonderfully different custard-type pie similar in consistency to a pumpkin pie.

Number of servings: 8
