What to do with Old Apples

Then a thought struck me. Applesauce. Applesauce doesn’t discriminate. It takes the crunchiest apples, the mushiest, the grainiest, the ugliest, the best and the worst. Maybe we should take a lesson in relationships from applesauce, come to think of it.

These apples have seen better days.
