This is also a great way to get kids used to eating apple skin. If you cut the slices thin, you barely notice it.
Sometimes it is just this simple.
How have you used appearance to make the ordinary into a special treat? I'd love to hear your ideas!
*Note: We don't own an apple corer, when we did in the past, I always "missed," the sweet spot and therefore just didn't find it helpful. After mangling several apples trying to core them with a knife, I finally asked my husband how he got the nice round hole in the middle. It turns out he used a pumpkin carving knife! (Incidentally, the apples in this picture demonstrate my first attempt with the pumpkin carving knife. My husband's look much better :)
