Copious Crab Apple Conundrum

This is my first post to SE. Lurking no more!

I have a massive crab apple tree on my property which produces bushels of fruit each year.

The problem: we have no idea what to do with the fruit.

We're no slouches as far as cooking is concerned, but we've never tried to use crab apples.

I'd really like to find a use for this crop. I can imagine someone burning us as heretics for letting them go to the mulch.

So, any ideas?

We make our own relishes and jams, so that's an option, but I'm interested in any recipe.
