Peel & core them, cut into thick slices. Brush with lemon juice. Lay on a baking sheet so they're not touching and put into an oven on the same kind of temperature that you'd use for meringues. Leave till they're all dried out.

Ta da!! Dried apple slices for putting into stuff later in the year when you've no apples left. Store in an air tight container.

Can be rehydrated in water or wine. I go for wine.

I'm not an expert on making puds but I reckon if I was gonna make a crumble I'd go for apple and rhubarb.  I bloody love rhubarb!  And crumbles are dead easy.

tarte tatin or tartes aux pommes

........ Id get some cooked and  nice and soft, a bit of sugar, split into small portions, bang in the freezer and use for roast pork/ chops. Hubby loves it, miles better than the baby dribble you get in jars.

Yep, and crumble for me too.....

Sits at table ready.

I love all things apple, love apple crumble.

apple and blackberry pie. spiced apple butter. fermented apple. (You'll need more than 4 bramleys for that though.)

WARNING - the attached link is to an incredibly yummy recipe, that could put pounds on just by opening it.

If you have enough empty jars to hand, you could make an apple chutney. Would be delicious with cold meats at Christmas. Or you could put a bit of ribbon around it and make it a gift.

Hugh Fearnley Whittingstall's Christmas chutney is very good, and needs around 4 bramleys (C4 / food, sorry can't do links on my Mac).

Why do they have to be used by tonight?

If you put them somewhere cool they will last for ages - don't believe the packaging!

It's cooking night, having a rest evening from running

years ago my late Gran had an apple tree in her Garden and she would save us all loads of apples to make pies or crumbles
