    I had to check this out, because what could there be to peeling apples? You grab a peeler, grab an apple, and have at it. Well, I learned something. It makes a lot of sense to deal with the top and the bottom first, because as Amy Traverso points out, it leaves you with essentially one repeated motion until the apple is peeled. It’s got to be a lot quicker than wandering all over the apple the way I’ve always done; I’m looking forward to trying it. Thank you, Amy!

    Just an older gal learning some new tricks. Who’d have thunk, this is a great idea. Thanks

    I can remember as a very little girl in the late ’50s watching my mother, grandmother and aunt standing at my grandmother’s sink, each peeling an apple in the circular fashion as fast as she could. The goal was to be the first to finish, with the peel coming off in a single spiral piece. Can’t say for sure if the Thunderbird wine played a role…
