Or . . . . you could just wash and eat the peel, which is better for you anyway.

That’s four seconds too many. Somebody who’s really good should be able to toss an apple in the air, pull a switchblade knife out of his pocket, open it, peel, halve, and core the apple, and have the knife back in his pocket as he catches the two halves of the apple with his other hand.

Depends on the variety of apple. Some have peels that soften when cooked, others have peels that toughen when cooked. I prefer the kind that soften, because I can leave them on and no one even notices. Not because they’re more nutritious, but because I’m lazy enough to want to skip steps if I can get away with it.

On the other hand, if you’re making an applesauce, the peels would change the color and some people with prefer taking them off.

If you do not have more than five seconds to peel an apple, you do not have a life. This is nothing more than someone wanting his five seconds of fame. Get a life beyond this, please, before I go into my....you do not want to know that part.

Before eating any fruit’s peel wash it thoroughly because the growers may have sprayed the tree with bug killer spray.

I had 2 apple trees in my backyard and they produced 1000 apples every year. Except every one had worms in it. I did not want to use poison spray so we just removed the worms and cooked the apples thoroughly.

I never quite figured out why people peel away the best part of an apple.

Now....having just watched the video I am definitely going to volunteer to peel and apple the next time someone asks me to do that for them.

Wow! Where I used to work, the man peeling the apple would have had to prepare a safe work plan and have it approved, have safety glass, steel mesh work gloves and steel-toed boots to perform that task. He also have had to tape off a large area around where he was working, to prevent injury to other workers.

Switchblades? Pansy blade! Real men do it with a sword!

Five seconds to peel the apple. An hour and a half to clean the sticky stuff off the drill and kill all the ants in the case.

**************************
No offense intended..., but why would anyone want to cut those little cherry tomatoes? They are perfect as is and the ‘spurt’ of juice when you bite into one is great.

Some recipes call for the cut ones. For example, a salad recipe I saw on a macaroni box that calls for sauteeing them in olive oil.

The hold them between two plates trick works okay as long as they are very nearly the same size. Otherwise might as well cut (or quarter) them manually. A new, clean single edge razor blade would work nicely for that with little or no juicing.

I really find my battery powered drill driver to be the one of the best tools around. I use it a lot might have to try this just for fun

I guess if you put them on a pizza and if you don’t have enough teeth to bite down?

Reminds me of the old joke about the emperor of Japan interviewing for a new chief Samurai....3 applicants - a Japanese, Chinese, and Jewish.

The Japanese opens a box and a bee flies out - swoosh - the bee's cut in half......Emperor is impressed.

The Chinaman opens a box and a fly exits - swoosh, swoosh - the fly is quartered......Emperor is very impressed.

The Jew opens a box and a gnat circles about - swoosh, and the gnat keeps flying.......Emperor, unimpressed, begins to chastise until the Jew tells him, "Circumcision is not meant to kill".
