By now, you’ve probably got loads of apples tucked away in your fridge after all the apple-picking outings you’ve been on. And you don’t need to eat them all raw — the apple is a seriously diverse kitchen staple. From fritters and pizzas to juices and seafood dishes, there’s no shortage of delectable ways use up your leftover apples. Here are just a few of our favourites:

1. Apple Fritters

Obviously Chef Lauren Gulyas at A is for Apple (from Mondays to Thursdays at 7:30 a.m. ET) knows what to do with fruit — especially apples. These fritters are made by deep frying thickly cut apple slices that have been dipped in a flour batter. Serve with some ice cream to make this the perfect dessert.

3. Caramel-Covered Apple Slices

One surefire way to make the humble apple irresistible to anyone who isn’t a huge fruit fan: dip it in melted caramel. Better yet, slice it first, then dip it and top with shredded coconut or crushed chocolate and pretzels or whatever other goodies you’ve got in the cupboard.

4. Lentil Salad with Pancetta and Apple

Apples provide the perfect sweet contrast to the pancetta’s salty flavour in this recipe. Throw in some lentils and an egg, top with a mustard maple dressing and you’ve got yourself a meal.

5. Tarte Tatin

Caramelized Granny Smith apples are the star of this upside-down pastry, but just about any old apple will do. Serve it warm with creme fraiche on a cold day.

7. Green Juice

If you can’t keep it, juice it. Turn several apples into an actual breakfast of champs with some celery, kale and lemon.

8. Pine Nut Pesto Scallops with Apple Celery Slaw

You’d be wise to double the recipe for the apple slaw that accompanies these pesto scallops. Granny Smith apples pair with chives, celery, honey, goats’ cheese, pine nuts and lemon juice for a delightful medley of flavours. You’re definitely going to want leftovers.

13. Apple and Armagnac Tresse

A tresse is like an apple pie but with puff pastry, which is to say it’s way more fancy and impressive. Uprooted‘s Sarah Sharratt has punched it up a bit with some Armagnac, but any brandy will do the trick (or none at all).
