Back in mid October, I bought a huge box of these gorgeous Empire apples:
The folks at Allred Orchards assured me they would be best if I ate them quickly, or at least refrigerated them. Of course I didn’t, since that would have meant cleaning out my fridge, which I don’t ever do if I can possibly help it. Anyway, they ended up looking sad and wrinkly.
Well, maybe not sad. They’re still a pretty color. But they are definitely wrinkly.
So I turned them into applesauce.
