An apple is a healthy and dietary fruit that needs some core removal to make certain dishes. It takes a lot of time. But the housewives have found a way out of this situation and use a number of devices to remove the core of apples with their own hands.

How to quickly remove core from apples?

Apples are used in any national cuisine. These fruits are included in the most diverse sections of cooking - from harvesting to meat dishes.

It should be noted that these fruits are quite difficult to prepare - you must carefully remove the stalk, stem, remove the peel with a thin spiral, and then cut out the central part. To simplify this time-consuming task, you can get special devices to remove the core from apples. They will help to make the procedure easy and quickly prepare the fruit for the table or for drying.

Core using a ski pole

To prepare apple preservation, it is necessary to remove the seed chamber. This can be done even without cutting the fruit into pieces, leaving it whole.

Ski stick for apple core removal

To do this, you need a ski aluminum pole with a diameter of 15 mm. A part of the pipe with a length of 15 cm is cut off. One of the ends is filed with a trihedral file to make six sharp teeth. On the other side of the stick, a plastic cork from champagne is inserted and a hole is made with a knife at the end of its upper part, into which a rod is inserted to remove the seed box.

After processing 2-3 fruits with a rod made of metal or wood, the waste is pushed out of the device, which allows the fruit to be kept intact. This is how you can quickly remove the core.

Do-it-yourself core cutting with a syringe

The simplest device for removing core from apples can be made with a medical syringe. With it, you can peel fruits for both drying and preservation.

To do this, use a syringe with a capacity of 20 ml, with a piston, as well as a pointed knife and good scissors.

Syringe preparation for apple core removal

We take a syringe and cut the bottom with the tip on which the needle is worn. We trim the cut with scissors and remove all the graduated paint from the surface of the syringe. Then, using a knife, gently cut small teeth on the end of the cylindrical wall of the syringe. They need to be made so that during the work process, the movement coincides with the clockwork scroll. That's it, the core cutter is done!

To remove the core of an apple with such a device, press the notched side of the syringe onto the fruit from one side along the longitudinal axis around which the seeds are placed in the fruit, rotating the syringe clockwise. Scrolling, you need to deepen the device into the fetus to its middle. Repeat the same action on the other side of the fetus. After the end of the process, the core is pushed out of the syringe by a piston.

How to core an apple

Cut apple core with a knife

We put the apple on a cutting board with the handle up.

We stick a short knife with a thin blade into the top of the apple, about a centimeter from the center, not into the core itself.

We pierce the apple through and through. We do it slowly so as not to cut ourselves. Check that the blade went through.

Now we take out the knife, again, slowly and carefully. We follow our fingers so that we don’t accidentally cut our fingers or palm.

Repeat the whole process three times, cutting around the center of the apple. At the end, we get four cuts, forming a square around the center of the apple.

Insert the knife into one of the cuts. We move the blade from the first cut to the second, and then to the other two, until the core is completely cut out.

We remove the knife and with our thumbs push the core down.
