The Simple Secret To Coring Apples

When coring the apples for this tasty fall treat, you want to preserve as much of the apple itself as possible. Removing the core with a knife can cut away too much of the flesh. That’s why we like to use an apple corer. Start by twisting the corer into the top of the apple p and keep twisting as you push through the center of the fruit — the motion makes it a breeze to remove the core in one piece!
