How to Cut an Apple

One thing that I have never learned to do well is cut an apple.
I assumed it would be in the handbook they gave me when I came home from the hospital with Carter, but alas it was not.
And I have been sending my kids to school with poorly cut apples since…

But then one day it dawned on me.  Why don’t I just cut an apple kind of like I cut a mango?

Sit the apple upright and cut off four sides, leaving all the seed and core in one square piece!
Then you can just slice up the pieces and wah-lah!  Pretty apple slices!
And best part?  Super easy clean-up!

You’re welcome.

    Thats the same way I do it! Have you seen an aussie apple? Pretty neat way to send an apple to school without it changing color.

    Okay, I totally use an apple corer and don’t actually have to cut anything. Just slide the thing down and voila! Done.

    But I love green apples and so I dig your pictures!
