I know it doesn’t sound like rocket science, but I’ll admit that I didn’t cut apples like this until I saw someone doing it differently a while ago.
Previously, I cut apples from top to bottom through the core into quarters and then you cut out the core from each section. From there you chop or slice as needed. I’m not alone, hey!?
SO there’s an easier and faster way!
1. Cut the apple in a grid, as indicated below.
Within 4 cuts, you will have 8 apple pieces and a core. Voila!
But there’s more! Put all the pieces back together, gently applying some pressure, and the pieces will cling around the core, looking like a whole apple. This is a great way to use for school lunches, preventing the cut pieces to brown easily.
