You did what without an Apple Peeler?

Last summer/fall I learned how to make my own versions of applesauce, apple-pear sauce and apple butter.  It was a lot of fun, but honestly, a LOT of work.  Mostly because I had to peel every.single.apple by hand.

That is a lot of apples.

And this next year, I hope to do it all over again, only with a little help from this:

An apple peeler, corer, and slicer!  

My father-in-law forwards me his work's internal Craig's List of sorts (remember the table and chairs?) and I jumped at the chance for a slicer for $10.  I can't wait for an opportunity to use it!

The Source has used one for eons and you will be so thrilled at how quickly you can peel AND core a bushel of apples to make apple sauce, pie, cake, crumble, jelly, etc.

Oh how I love this apple peeler too! I can't even imagine going back to the old way, especially when working with large quantities!
