Hudson Valley Musing

My son-in-law gave me the ugliest apples I have ever seen

The ugliest apples I have seen in the Hudson Valley

My son-in-law gave me some apples and they were the ugliest apples I have seen.  Then again, this experience thought me you can’t judge an Apple by it’s skin.

At first I wanted to throw them in the garbage but what would I say when he  inquired as to how I used the apples?  He was so proud of his one apple tree, although it produced  such  spotted ugly apples.  I expected to find the apples riddled with worms when I cut into them, instead I found a lovely red color; that too was new for me.

My son-in-law is busy making cider with his apples, I heard his dad made apple butter and  I decided to make pies.

I peeled and cut the slices very thin and here is the rest of the progression towards two apple pies in photos.

Ugliest apples I have seen are being turned into pies

Putting it together, pie crust, apple slices, butter, brown sugar, cinnamon and a little grated ginger.

Finally the apples pies were  ready to be eaten.

 When the pies were ready I gave my husband and son a slice, and they thought it was very good.   I then called my son-in-law to come and get the second pie but he was out of town, so I will have to wait until tomorrow to get his response.

Yes you can never fully judge an apple by it’s skin.  Next year I will accept more of  these ugly apples.
