The hot summer days are behind us. The mornings are filled with brisk air, and local markets are ladened with
a variety of fresh-picked apples. This perfectly packaged fruit is a tasty totable lunch treat, or cook them in the
Small Ridged Baker for a delicious dessert. Have you tried making apple slices with the Microwave Chip
Maker? Slice apples using the Simple Slicer. Use the #1 thickness for apples on the top and #2 thickness for
the bottom tray and you'll have crisp apple chips!
Here are some helpful tips:
When handling apples that will be served raw, toss the apples with an acidic ingredient such as lemon juice,
orange juice, lemon-lime soda or salt water. Apples give off acid that ripens other fruit, so store apples in the
refrigerator away from other fruit. If you keep apples with potatoes the apples will prevent the potatoes from
growing eyes! Apples with smooth bottoms are cooking apples; Apples with bumps on the bottom are better
raw. Sprinkle jello over Apple Corer Peeler Slicer strips of apple skins and bake at 200 degrees for 1 hour.
Result: GUMMI WORMS! Look at the bottom of an apple. If the blossom is "tight" it is a fresh apple. If blossom
is open it is too old; don't buy it! Slice apples thinly for apple pie. The Apple Peeler Corer Slicer is great for this.
Thick slices promote air space and create a gap between the fruit and the crust.
