300 mini apples

this post has been updated

First off, I hate waste. This led me to picking (at least) 300 tiny apples from our overgrown, in-desperate-need-of pruning apple tree. But they tasted ok & are pretty cute.

Applesauce is the plan. Cook them whole, run them through a sieve to strain out pits and stems and voila!?  I can't think of anything else to do with them and I really don't want to core miniature apples.

October 8th update:
Failure! I made applesauce. Blended them whole in the vitamix instead of trying to run them through a sieve later. I boiled this resulting slop of seeds and stems and apples then simmered in a large pot for several hours to reduce the water. The result was a bitter, aftertaste. Even with added cinnamon and honey, it was yuck.
