How to Cut Apples

There’s more than one way to cut an apple, but this method is great for using in cakes, crisps and cobblers. It creates larger chunks of apples for recipes requiring a longer baking time.

For peeling the apple, you can use either a Vegetable Peeler or a Paring Knife. However, when cutting apples, make sure to use the right size knife for the size apple you’re cutting.
