Here are a few ideas of how to put those apples to good use.
Boozy Apple Cider Recipe:
1 gal. apple cider
1 1/2 c. whiskey, preferably Fireball
1/2 c. Caramel

Use an apple corer to remove the inside of the apple until you’re about 1/2" from the bottom of the apple. Squeeze lemon juice inside the apple cups to prevent apples from browning. Ladle hot cider into apple cups. Garnish with cinnamon sticks, and serve immediately.
