"How many apples fell on Newton's head before he took the hint?" --Robert Frost
I've always turned my nose up at fancy apple peelers. They waste too much of the apple. I prefer the "zen" of paring and coring by hand. They cost too much....
A few pies and a batch of applesauce later, I've changed my mind.
I planted a pair of Granny Smith trees in my backyard this summer. With any luck, someone will present me with one of these before the trees begin producing. (hint, hint) This one is pretty too but a little pricey.
The tiny apples are crabs but they are sweet! We got them from Charles and Susan of Prairie Song Apiary.
Going to let my hands rest now. ;)
