Apple Preparation



Insert corer directly into the center of the apple; twist with even pressure and lift up to remove the core. This may be done before or after the fruit has been cut.

Sample of Coring  


Paring may be done before or after the apple is cut. However, it's more time-saving to peel the whole apple. Use a sharp knife, and with a slight side motion, cut the peel or skin away or "strip peel" the apple in a continuing spiral.

Sample of Peeling  


Core and slice apples crosswise in any thickness. For half circles, halve apples from top to bottom before slicing crosswise.

Sample of Rings  


Remove the core and cut each apple into eighths. Cut each eighth into bite-sized pieces or wedges.

Sample of Tidbits  


Halve the apple lengthwise and remove the core. Cut lengthwise into pieces or slices.

Sample of Slices  


Cut apple in half lengthwise and then crosswise. Remove core, cut each quarter into three or four large-sized pieces.

Sample of Chunks  


Remove stem and blossom end of apple and core. Cut lengthwise through the apple and place half, core side down, on cutting board. Slice evenly lengthwise.
