    I will be freezing sliced apples.  They're not very big and would take long days to manually peel and slice them.  Does any have a great chopper/slicer they can recommend?

    I would be greatly appreciative.

    I'd be saucing them.  No need to peel & saves oodles of time compared to peeling/slicing smaller apples.  BTDT in yrs. past!  If peeling is optional, then skip & use a food processor with a slicer attachment to quickly do them up.

    Our trees seem to be on the every other yr. heavy production cycle & sauce keeps well.  In fact some yrs. hail has pretty much ruined the apples so I usually do up 2 yrs. worth just in case. 

    ETA: Juice is another quick way to use apples.

    I have an apple peeler, corer, slicer from Pampered Chef is great depending on what type of slices you want.  I use it to make apple pie and apple crisp.

    I found one on Amazon

    Thanks so much for the suggestion.  I'll have to look at Pampered Chef.  Pepmint, we had a big crop from our one tree last year, too.  It took me by surprise.  I thought I would plan ahead this year.

    The one I posted from Amazon is about $17, the Pampered Chef one will set you back a bit more.  I don't see any major differences between them.

    I can't wait to see how our Honey Crisp does next year, or, does it take a few years? I'm sure it won't be big enough next year.   We have one apple tree on the point in our pasture, but, I didn't see manyon it the last time I checked. The deer get them quickly.

     

    There is one other apple tree in the field above the barn, but, the apples aren't that good. I thought it was a Crab apple, but, DH said you could eat them if you wanted. I know my horse will eat forever if I let her . Hard not to, though.
