2 videos for apple lovers….. We love this apple peeler/corer contraption and use it all the time. If you’re a pie lover, you can break down a big pile of apples in a snap. Kids (and adults) will also love the fun, swirly apple spirals for snack time. Pick one up here.
While on the topic of apples, I also happened upon this quick and easy microwave (you can call if faux “sous vide” if you like!) applesauce video recipe from the Voltaggio brothers of Top Chef fame. This is pretty much the opposite of our recent endeavor with slow cooker apple-pear butter — but quite a handy little trick for homemade applesauce on the quick. We don’t microwave a whole lot, but I must say it does have its shining moments. I looked into it and famed foodie scientist Harold Magee says that the quick cooking in the microwave actually retains more nutrients and prevents oxidation in certain items (produce/fruit). So thanks, Voltaggios, for giving the lowly microwave its just due.
