***I dug this out of the archives for today. The same is true this year: every week I buy a 12-pack of Honeycrisp and a 12-pack of Granny Smiths from Costco and every week they are gone. They have been dee-licious this year, just like the last!
These are Honeycrisp apples – a newish variety that’s a cross between the Macoun and the Honeygold. They are deee-lish and the adorables, the Running Man, and I have been eating them like candy.
So our contraption that peels, cores, and slices them has been getting a real workout lately.
Looks a little scary, doesn’t it?
Start by sliding the lever (with the black rubber tip) over and the unit is completely secure on any surface.
Then you prong the apple right in the center of the core.
Next you call over your adorable to turn the handle. The apple is peeled into teeny strips like this.
While you are cranking, there’s something traveling through the center that is slicing and coring the apple at the same time.
So, with a 1-minute investment, you end up with an apple peeled, cored, and sliced. Thanks to the Running Man for the demonstration.
And then we eat it all up and repeat the process.
Can’t tell you how handy this little thing is come pie-making time. 6-8 apples peeled, cored and sliced in about 7 minutes, or 15 with “help” from the adorables.
