How to Peel and Core Apples

  Using a Vegetable Peeler

  1. Use a vegetable peeler to remove the apple skin. For best results, start at the top of the apple and circle down the circumference of the apple. When done correctly, the peel should come off all in one piece.

  2. Choose to either use an apple corer to remove the core or to manually slice the apple removing the pulp from its core.

  To remove the apple core using an apple corer, insert the apple corer tool in the center of the apple while pushing and twisting. Remove the core by pulling the apple core out. You may need to scrape any remaining apple seeds with a paring knife. Insert the paring knife into the apple and scrape gently until the seeds are removed.

  Alternatively you can elect to remove the apple pulp from the core by slicing the pulp away from the apple. To do this take a sharp knife and cut vertically along the side of the apple. Turn the apple and repeat this three times until all four sides of the apple are sliced away from the core.

  3. Cut your apple as directed by your recipe. Usually, a recipe will either call for apple wedges or apple cubes.
