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.
