Apples are soooo good – especially now. And I know when you see that the ingredients read – 8 apples roughly chopped, your heart might sink a bit with the prep work. So, here is the plan of attack. First, put on some really good music.
Cut the top and bottoms off of the apples. All of them. Then peel each apple with a sharp paring knife (I do this) but try not to take too much of the flesh off. If you are lousy at this – use a peeler. Peel them all.
Slice the apples in half. All of them.
Taker your apple corer (you should get one) and scoop out the center core by gently pushing the scooper in and twisting. Then use the scooper to take the little extra rough bits around the core.
Core them all.
Take each apple half and slice. Now you have slices.
Turn apple, slice again – now you have roughly chopped apples.
