Late season apples

Apple pieYesterday I picked the norther spy variety of apples in our small orchard. They are an extra special treat since they mature so late in the season and only produce biannually. This semi-tart crush Apple is great eating apple that is also good for baked goods and sauces. After picking through and crating the apples for storage we were left with a few dozen damaged apples that would not keep. Since we already used early season apples to make enough cider, apple sauce and apple butter of the next year so I used some of the damaged apples to make the first apple pie of the season for our house. The remaining set-asides were peeled, sliced and bagged for the freezer. We waste very little in this house so the peels were prepared and stored to age into Apple cider vinegar.
