Crab apple relish.

Apparently if you throw crab apple pips onto the fire whilst saying the name of your loved one, if the love is true, the pips will explode! Well it's what we believe here in Australia :)

Apple vinegar or crabapple chutney

London_Eats is right; crabapples are so tart they can stand up to the sugar necessary for canning. Toss a little thyme into the jelly; it's heavenly. You don't have to make jelly, either; crabapple jam is delicious, too.

Diana, that's a great idea - you can add all sorts of herbs to the jelly (or jam) - a sprig of thyme or rosemary to infuse into the jam, or star anise or cinnamon for a warming wintery flavour. I'm off to see if I can find any in the woods this weekend, fingers crossed!

We had crab apple trees in our backyard. My mom made a pickled spiced crab apple that was delicious. This recipe sounded like it might be close. http://www.food.com/recipe...
