certainly better than slices as an on the run snack!
That is a smart idea!

Brilliant! I always cut off most of the apple when I cut them the other way. Don't mean to, just happens! Now I just need to get a melon baller... (p.s. I was signed in on another account up there, so I deleted the comment)
When you cut so many apples, I can see how it would change your life! I need to get a melon baller now...
Love that baby's huge eyes! I don't have a melon baller; gonna try it with a strawberry huller...I have a feeling my grandbaby doll is gonna love this, too.
My mom just gave me one of those apple cutters that takes the entire core out and leaves it perfectly sliced. Best invention ever!
I just wanted to thank you for changing to a full feed for Google Reader. I really appreciate it! Thanks for the great tips!
I only saw this trick for the first time last week at the Food and Wine festival. Manu Fieldel used it to scoop the seeds out of the bottom of a pear he was going to poach. I would never have thought to use it for apples. That is brilliant!I cut up apples all the time for my breakfast... off to get melon baller.
Great idea!!I have a slicer thing, but this is good for half apples!
that is a great idea! I actually just wrote a blog post about a food trick that has changed my life: http://thenotsoharriedhousewife.blogspot.com/2011/11/tomato-paste-trick.html
I recently spent the best $20.00 of my life. Bed,Bath,& Beyond had an Apple Peeler/Corer/Slicer. It is old-fashioned and low-tech, but I have used it almost every day for the past two weeks!
It's possible I love you. Brilliance.
Your idea is similar to mine. I peel the apple and then use a Pampered Chef corer and hand it to my girls (my oldest likes her own apple but won't eat as much because she's afraid to get to the core, until I bought that gadget!). Awesome idea!
You can actually just use a spoon - pointier kinds work best. Insert tip of spoon near core of halved apple & rotate around til have scooped whole thing in one motion. No need to purchase additional kitchen gadgets.
Ooo! You can put peanut or almond butter in the center!
My tip for apples on the go or packed into a lunch to keep them from turning brown is to cut it in four sides around the core, then put the pieces back together (up against the core) & then put a rubber band around the whole apple to hold it together. When you take the rubber band off at lunch-time, your apple won't be brown!
Just tried this today, worked like a charm! I have the apple corer/slicer magigy but not all apples fit perfectly and I end up using a knife anyway! Thanks for all the great tips!
My mom used to do this when we were little. We called it the swimming pool way.
And fill it with peanut butter!!!! My kids LOVE this!!!
