Tips:

I’m a huge “freegan” and I’ve recruited Francie to the cause…we found these apples falling unused to the ground in an apartment complex we were passing over the weekend.  We stopped and scrounged up a bag and loaded up.  It was encouraging to see all the bug damage, because it let us know that they were safe for us to eat too (not to mention the extra protein they provide 🙂 ).  This recipe tasted great, but was even better with a little full fat coconut milk dribbled on.  -Patty
