How To Eat More Apples

The Goodness of Apples

They are good and good for us.

Eating More Apples

Most of us love the taste of a fresh apple. And we know they are good for us and that we should eat more of them. Here is a way that I eat apples that you might find appealing. And you may just eat more of them.


Items

Corer/slicer, peeler, knife, and cinnamon.

What you will need

I like to get fresh red apples, but any kind will do. Then I use a peeler, corer/slicer, knife, and cinnamon.

I am sure that you have a peeler. You can buy a corer/slicer in many places. The prices range from $3 to about $30, depending on what type you want. Some are stainless steel and well made, so it is really just a matter of preference, and how often you plan to use it. Mine was a gift, so I can’t tell you much about it, except it works well and I like it.

More about cinnamon

Oh cinnamon, I could go on about the health benefits for hours. And the taste and aroma make so many things better. But let us stick to the apple. I like to use organic cinnamon, that I purchase by the capsule online. I am sure that the regular kind will work just fine.

The peeling process

Removing the peel

After washing the apple I start to peel it. I usually peel a little off the top first.

Then I peel strips on the apple. This way I get the ease of eating a peeled apple, along with the benefit that the peel provides us. I have found it to be a very nice alternative to peeling the entire apple and not eating any off the peel.

Strips

I like to leave part of the peel as it is so good for you.

Trimming the slices

Many times you will have core remnants left over on your apple slices. I like to remove them with a knife.

Seasoning it up

Now sprinkle the cinnamon on the apple slices. Use as much or as little as you want. I find it is similar to eating a piece of apple pie. Sometimes I microwave the pieces for about 30 seconds, and it is even more like apple pie.

Happy eating!

If you cannot find any apple corers, here are some online links to a couple.
