There are certain helpful gadgets in my kitchen that I just can't imagine being without. One of them is my apple peeler corer slicer that I got at a Pampered Chef home party many many many years ago. The hours of time it saves me in the fall when apples come into season here in Michigan have been numerous. You can peel a bushel of apples in no time flat for pies, applesauce, breads...anything that needs sliced apples.
I love to make apple pie filling in the fall and freeze bags of it to use all winter longer for fresh tasting apple pie. I just take all the ingredients for the pie filling and mix it together and place each individual pie filling in a zip lock bag, then all winter when I want to make a pie its just a matter of grabbing a bag from the freezer.
There are several functions to this handy kitchen helper but mostly I use the full feature of peeling, coring and slicing the apples.
The wonderful thing about having the machine slice the apples for you is that ever slice is the same, makes for very even baking. You can leave leave the apple sliced but still together in the spiral if you want to make baked apples.
For other baking projects you just run you knife down the apple twice and you have perfect quartered apple slices. Diced apples ready for pie, bread, struttle, whatever your apple lovin heart desires.
