Meet the Apple Master
Our apple tree is loaded this year - so much so that it's resting half of it's branches on the ground.
Along with baking pies and making applesauce, I decided to dehydrate apple rings for an upcoming backpacking trip. I went to Fleet Farm to get an apple corer but ended up bringing home an Apple Master.
"Quickly Pares, Cores & Slices in one easy motion!" Sounds too good to be true... I had my doubts that the Apple Master would really work.
The first step was to spear the apple through the core.
Then I turned the crank and giggled with delight because the Apple Master actually works. And it works WELL!
The sliced and peeled apple slid right off of the core.
The slices were still connected so to make rings, I just cut all the way through one side of the apple.
Next, I placed the rings in a solution of 1/2 C. honey, 1/2 C. water, and the juice of half a lemon.
Then I loaded up the trays of my dehydrator. I wish I had more trays!
The apples turned out great and the Apple Master saved me a TON of time. I don't think I would use the Master for peeling just one or two apples but when I need to peel a whole bunch of them, my new favorite kitchen toy will definitely come out of the cupboard.
