Continuing on with the apple theme (after all, we did pick 40 pounds!!), here is my favorite apple crisp recipe. I used to wing it when I made any kind of crisp – a little oats, a little butter, a little sugar – done. But, it didn’t always turn out great. Until now!! My dear friend Venessa was kind enough to share her tried and true apple crisp recipe, and I’ve never strayed from it. Make it once, and you’ll see why.
Now, you might be thinking, “I love apple crisp, but all that peeling and coring of apples. Ugh!” No, no, no, my friend. Like our applesauce making, this too is a simplified process with the addition of a little machine. Home4You Apple Peeler Slicer & Corer, Classic Red coating It peels, cores, AND slices the apple for you! Bam! Now we’re talking!
Making apple crisp (or any other apple recipe) is a breeze with this! If you have some wonky-shaped apples, they won’t come out perfect, but it will still be much easier to cut a couple peels or a seed out than starting from scratch.
