I got a wonderful! (can't believe I lived without one) Apple peeler/corer. I have been using this quite often. My kids love their apples cut up this way. Thanks mom and dad for the great gift.
I also received a dehydrator from my husband for Christmas. It is an Excalibur 2900, 9 tray dehydrator. I got it out and loaded it up with apples. It worked so well and the apples turned out perfect. I bought a bag of apples for $2.99 and used them all. It filled three and half trays up and I ended up with a quart jar full. I really can't wait to use it this garden season.
