Tip: Use an Apple Slicer/Corer/Peeler Tool

If you don't already have one, I recommend getting yourself an apple peeler/slicer/corer tool. My son built me a cutting board that fits inside my sink, and I attach the peeler directly to it.

It's a huge time-saver. You pull the crankshaft back, poke the apple by the stem, push the apple to the cutter side, start turning the crank, and within seconds, the apple peeler knife pares the apple. Then, the apple is turned across a sharp blade, which cuts a circle in your apple that separates the core from the slices, and a round, flat blade evenly slices your apple into thin slices. Then, you remove the apple from the prongs.

At this point, I place my apple over the pan and use a small knife to cut the whole, sliced apple into small, one-inch pieces.
