Apple Carving

Pin It Now!
My son loves to eat apple, and I like to play with apple :D
















It's not as difficult as it seems if you have the right tool.
I use this little carving knife. Just don't forget to dry the knife right after you use it because it does get rusty easily.








One more important tip! Preparing a bowl of salt water ( 1 cup of water with 1 tea spoon of salt) when you want to carve apples. Dipping the apple in salt water for a few seconds will prevent it from turning yellow. You should do that even during the half why through your carving process!  Don't worry....your apple won't taste salty.
Lemon water would do the same trick. However, I don't always have lemon in my kitchen.
It works on pear and pineapple too!

  3. love your blog- so cute! My son is the pickiest eater- maybe if I make food fun like you he'll eat it:) I have a question about soaking your apple in the salt water- I'm assuming you soak it only after you've cut it right? Or do you do it before it's cut too?

  4. Thank you for visiting my new blog. I totally understand how it feels to have a picky eater at home.....so frustrated! Good luck to you :)
    And you got it right. Soak the apple after you cut it open. The part with no skin will stay the same colour for much longer time!

  7. Thanks for the tip on soaking the apple in salt water! I've only known about lemom water or 7up, and I don't always have those on hand. We always have salt though. :)
