The best invention

A bucket of apples can take a bit of time to process by hand, but with this handy contraption, you can be done in no time at all!
Behold the apple peeler, slicer, corer.... this has to be the coolest invention ever! If you don't already have one, you have got to get one.

A few quick turns of the handle and the peel is removed, the core is gone and the apple is neatly sliced.
Here is the final product... a perfectly peeled, cored and sliced apple in literally seconds.
A few quick cuts and your apple ready to go or you could leave as is and have perfect slices.

Eight cups of sliced apples ready for any apple recipe. I typically freeze in 8 cup increments in 1 gallon freezer bags.

Abby put this crumble together this past weekend.

Vanilla ice cream is the perfect accompaniment for warm apple crumble.

6-8 med. apples, peeled, cored, sliced thinly
1/4 c. sugar
1/8 tsp. salt
Dash of cinnamon
Dutch Crumble Topping
Toss apples with sugars, salt, spice; pour into greased 9 inch pie pan. Top with Dutch Crumble Topping.

1/2 c. butter
1/2 c. quick oats
1/2 c. flour
2/3 c brown sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp. baking soda
Mix with pastry blender until pebble-like. Sprinkle over apples. You may have to press down lightly. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes or until done.

I couldn't do apple pie filling without mine. It is a life saver.

I use to have one, but it broke! It was a gift so I'm not sure where to get one??? Any ideas? I'm anxious to try your recipe out!
