Have you seen one of these?

It peels, cores and slices apples and potatoes. I even tried it on the pears – it worked better on the Asian pears than the Bartlett pears because of their shape.

Great Time-saver!

I came home from work last night and decided to put up the very last of our Gravenstein Apple bounty. Grandpa helped out with the watering, entertaining Percy and checking on the chickens. He had picked the last of the apples over the weekend. The apple peeler-slicer is such a time-saver. It is really fun too.

Kailyn and Ellie: you will have to remind grandma and grandpa to let you give it a try the next time you visit. I always have to “test” the apple slices before they go into the pot!

Here are a couple of pics of the apples simmering away into applesauce heaven. We just add a bit of cinnamon, a couple of cups of water and just a quarter cup of sugar to the entire batch. They are sweet enough and oh so tasty on their own.

The finished product, ready be shipped to family and friends. Or better yet, come visit and you can share the applesauce with us where it was grown and lovingly preserved 🙂

  1. You are welcome Genie! We picked ours up a few years ago at Sebastopol Hardware. Love it!

  2. Isn’t that the greatest tool ever?! And I love that it appears to be a very old design that has lasted because it works. (and no batteries or plug-ins needed.) I have one tucked in the back of my cupboard someplace. Thanks, Arlene, for reminding me of it!
