My brother rocks

Seriously.

He sent me this for my birthday:


What's that you ask?

Why this:


It peals, cores and slices all in one turn of the handle.

Really.

Can you think of a better present for someone living in apple country?

The girls love it.

They call the product of the amazing machine's process 'super apples' and we have a new favourite dessert around here. I was a bit disappointed at first as they always ate the peel until now but then I realised the poor hard-done-by-by-the-eat-everything-and-then-lick-the-plate Fukase girls now get a smidgen when we eat apples.

It makes apple crumble, apple pie and apple pudding a breeze! And stewed apples? Pah- no challenge these days!

And K? K just likes gadgets so he's sold from the time he saw the picture on the box.

Everyone's a winner!

Oh natsukashii! We used to have two, one for regular apples, one for crab apples (teeny!). Saves so much work don't you think? Wish it was cool enough in the summer here to grow apples.

Thats awesome. For a minute there I thought it might be to help attach the pasta machine to the bench not the table...

Your brother totally rocks indeed! : )

That is awesome and something quite useful especially living in apple country.

And anything to speed the process along for apple crisp/crumble and apple pie, all the better. : )

Glad you like it.
Fry them in a little bit of butter or batter them first even.
Add some brown sugar or maple syrup.
Awesome brekky/snack/desert.

Now I need to start plotting for this year. Butter churner?
