So I was manually coring some apples at my house to dry them using a knife and commenting to my friend Rosannah how much of a pain it was to do so. She suggested using a technique that her dad does; just sharpen a piece of copper pipe and use that to core the apple. So, a quick trip to my garage and a few minutes later I now have an easy apple coring setup. The sharpened copper pipe easily pushes out the core, and the wooden spoon handle is used to push the core out of the pipe.
Mmmm.. dried apples! Thanks to Ken and Gabrielle Adelman for giving them to me.
And I’m also trying dried tomatoes; since my garden is giving me a ton of them lately!
