Although this isn't a recipe, I posted it here for when you do an apple pie recipe this fall. I used to peel my apples, quarter them to remove the cores, slice into wedges. I now..... peel my apples and take the whole peeled apple to my mandolin. I make one cut with my peeling knife from the one side of the apple almost to the core. This is so the first slices are not complete apple circles. Starting with the side with the cut down the middle, I run the apple down the slicer one side at a time (being careful to stop before hitting the core.) I get my apple slices ready for the pie in record time.
