Step1: Wash the apple
First and foremost you want to always wash your apples!
Apples have the most amount of pesticides on them compared to any other fruit. It’s important to get all the gross chemicals off before you start to cut.
You can use a vegetable wash or at the very least use water and clean the apple off with a dishtowel.
Step 2: Cut the apple into slices
Start by placing the knife about a 1/4 inch away from the stem and slice through the side of the apple. Stay away from the core just a little bit so that you don’t get the seeds in your slices.
Do the same thing on the other side of the apple’s stem.
Now, you only have two thin sides left to cut, so go ahead and slice those all the way through as well.
This works for a variety of all apples.
Step 3: Cut the slices
Now that you have your apple sliced away from the core, go ahead and lay the apple slices peel side up and slice the apple into wedges. EASY! Now enjoy this great snack!
