How to Core and Slice an Apple
How to Core and Slice an Apple - as part of the expert series by GeoBeats.

Hi, I am Oron Franco from The Private Chef NYC and today I am going to show you how to core and slice an apple. Now, first thing I want to do is divide the apple into quarters. So, half once, and half a second time. Now, to prevent the apple from turning black, to oxidize while we are working with it, we will rub a little bit of lemon on each side. This will make sure that it will not go brown and especially if you are doing something like a fruit salad or a cheese plate and you want the apple to stay nice and bright, this is something you should definitely do.
Now, we will take each quarter in a diagonal cut, we are going to take the core out. Now we are not only getting rid of the core, but we are actually creating a flat surface for us to put the apple on, so it will be easier to slice after. So, let me get the rest of these guys. Now that we have all the apples nice and flat, we can go ahead and slice them. We have got these nice little petals or if you want something smaller, if you are making an apple pie or something like that and you want smaller pieces, that is how you core and slice and apple.

    I slice up all the apple, the only thing I toss is the stem and that goes into a compost pile, yup core, seeds, the whole ball of wax goes down my nacho hatch, I'm an ANIMAL !!! I'm also cheap too, don't waste nuttin' !!! I schmear the slices with my own peanut butter and a dash of salt.

      Just follow the steps but don't slice them into small pieces, do a slice down the middle of the two big slices, It'll make them smaller. :)

    that's what i find difficult about high speed cutting - the slices often shift up the knife and onto your hand or they fly everywhere including on the floor

    do you have to rub the lemon on every slice? im making a cheese plate so will have plenty of apple slices but in the video you only had it done on the first 4 parts

      @***** I would think lemonade would be too sweet and would change the flavor. Plus, the acids might not be strong enough to do a good job. Just my thought though.

    • PCnever

      @GeoBeats News thank you!! very helpful!

      You can also spritz with or dip in lemon juice, but, yes, if setting out on a plate, you would want to do this on any part of the apple with no skin. Otherwise, after some time, the flesh will begin to turn brown.

    A lot of the apple gets wasted ... but of course I can see how in a restaurant speed is more important than some cents worth of apple meat
