How to Core an Apple

Apple Corer - You can find these in most stores that sell kitchen tools and utensils. An apple corer has a shaft that ends in a cylinder with little sharp teeth. Make sure the shaft of your apple corer is tall enough to go through a good-sized apple. 

  1. With the cylinder facing down towards the apple, push down into the apple core and pull it out slowly. (Yep, it's that easy!)
  2. To remove the core from the apple corer, just take a paring knife and push in. You don't want to use your fingers, since the corer does have little teeth.

  1. Cut your apple in half. Then, cut each half in half. (You will have cut your apple into quarters). 
  2. Lay each quarter flat, and cut at an angle to cut off the core. 


Now that you know how easy it is to core apples, why not try your hand at making some of these easy apple dessert recipes?

To core I cut the apple in half and scoop out the core with a melon ball scooper. Quick and easy.
