Freezing Apples

Apples are in rich abundance this season. My family loves eating them year round in cobblers and pies, but we often can't afford the higher prices on apples later in the season. To remedy this, I called up my "idea-rich" daddy and asked him how he freezes his apples for later use. Here is the recipe. There won't be any pictures added until later, as our apples aren't quite ready for pickin' yet. Hope you enjoy it.

Items Needed:
Apples: peeled, cored and sliced
2 qts. water
4 cups sugar

Add water and sugar to large pot. Bring to rolling boil. Boil for 5 minutes. Remove from heat. Add apples to plastic freezer containers. Pour liquid over apples, leaving 1/2 inch head space for expansion. Place in freezer. When getting ready to use, defrost apples, drain liquid and use in pies, cobblers or any other recipe that calls for apples. Enjoy!
