If you are making a pie, crisp, sauce or pretty much any baking recipe that calls for apples you will need to peel and core them.
This method is my favourite – it’s quick to peel and super easy to core.
There are lots of step-by-step photos, but if you need extra instruction, I have made a video for you too.
I hope this works as well for you as it does for me.
