lol yeah [In reply to] Can't Post

You take those pips out if it makes you feel better - no real point to eating them anyway other than as a bulking agent i guess but that isnt too nice to think about!

I do not miss red meat anymore [In reply to] Can't Post

having dropped it 40 years ago. Considerations as to heart disease and colorectal cancer and all the additives of growing beef i felt it wise to stop.
Today, i try to use poultry and turkey products that are organically raised. Fish i like that are wild caught once in a while. Sardines are quite excellent in omega 3 oils.

Wow, Xanaseb, seems like you've really touched on something here! [In reply to] Can't Post

At first I thought that your eating the whole apple was a Polish thing - the only time I've ever seen anyone eat an apple, core and all, was in Poland - but apparently you are not the only one here who does that. Laugh

I usually slice my apples, or else eat smaller varieties. Somehow, just biting into a large apple makes me feel like I'm going to dislocate my jaw. Shocked

BTW, the best apples I've eaten were in Poland. My landlord there had a never-ending supply of excellent apples, but I didn't eat that many because I felt like they would think I was being wasteful by not eating the entire thing. I only ate them if I could get rid of the tell-tale core. Crazy Laugh

None of the above. [In reply to] Can't Post

I love apples but am allergic to them, unless they are cooked. Same with pears. Frown

So I can no longer sink my teeth into a Red Delicious. It's either apple sauce, apple pie (mmmmm pie), apple crisp, apple crostada, apple pandowdy or apple butter on a fresh biscuit.

As far as my iPod Nano, iPhone and Little D's iPod Touch and iPad, they have survived several years without a single byte.

Be sure to use the crunchy peanut butter! [In reply to] Can't Post

The crunchiness contrasts nicely with the smooth apple! Smile

Use a corer/slicer [In reply to] Can't Post

One of my sons likes apple slices in his lunchbox, so I have acquired a gadget that one places over the apple and pushes down through the apple to remove the core and slice what remains into 8 pieces. Anything to shave a few minutes off the time it takes to get them out the door in the morning...

So anyway, when I do eat apples I use this thing myself.

Our dog enjoys the apple core, stick and all.Sly

Well, there are only three of us [In reply to] Can't Post

So it still seems pretty rare, which fits with the reactions I get when people see me eating an apple, core and all.

I must say that this is an amazing thread. We should start a poll on how people eat po-ta-toes next!

I like salted apples [In reply to] Can't Post

but I rarely do it any more, because of the too-much-salt thing. And I eat the whole thing, core and all.

I believe i know that item. [In reply to] Can't Post

The wife has one. It has a good suction cup which holds it to the kitchen counter. As a wood worker, it acts like lathe peeling the skin off, and making the main part of the apple into a 'slinky' type that can easily transformed into the makings of an apple pie which she likes to do especially for various holidays. Itt also has a coring element in the process. An all-in-one thingee ha. She can 'knock them out' compared to the old method of peeling and cutting by hand.
...Mouth is watering. Time to make a request i do believe:).

No, mine does not peel the apple. [In reply to] Can't Post

Though I know what you mean - my sister has one of those.

When I bake apple pies, I need to peel them manually. Fortunately son #2 does not require his sliced apples to be peeled. :)

Apples & peanut butter - I do that once in a while myself also. Although I prefer creamy pb to chunky Sly.

Preliminary results are in ;-) [In reply to] Can't Post

I left the skin on my apple today ... washed it thoroughly ... examined it carefully, took notes (this is for science, remember, must be thorough :-)). And then ... *crunch*.... contemplate ...*munch*.... contemplate ...

And overall it was pretty much was how I remembered it. To me, the skin didn't add anything flavor wise, and actually rather interfered with the sweetness & juice of the inside. The skin was crunchy, which we noted that carefully on our lab sheet ;-), but the apple inside was crunchy too, so to me it didn't really add anything there either.

However...

Today's test subject was a Red Delicious. Which might not have been the best choice. I have a beautiful Gala on hand also, so tomorrow I will try again with a Gala as the test subject!

P.S. There is also the very real possibility that the apples where you live are simply of a different (better?) quality which makes the skins much better tasting than the ones I have access to Unsure.

I also tried Magpie's salt suggestion as separate experiment. Going to post those results in that thread ...!

I am impressed by your dedication [In reply to] Can't Post

I have no idea how the quality of our apples would compare. That's an interesting discussion in itself, as is the different varieties - most of the types mentioned so far in this thread I have never heard of.

Come to think of it, it is surely time we asked the admins to create a separate 'apple' board. I think there is both the demand, and the need. Cool

How did you discover it? [In reply to] Can't Post

Or has it always been in your family?

Perhaps this is a good time to mention that I use to eat peanut butter and mayonnaise sandwiches. Yummy.
