Best “New-to-me” Old Invention

I bought myself a new kitchen tool this week! It’s an old fashioned apple peeler/slicer/corer!

It suction cups to the counter, and then you pluck out the stem and stick the apple on the contraption. Then just wind the handle a few times and you have a newly bald apple, one long thin snake like piece of skin, and the core! I whizzed through a big bag of apples in no time and made some apple sauce.

Now I’m thinking this would make short work of peeling potatoes. Might be worth a try. I don’t like potatoes. Unless they are fried. Hmmm, might be worth a try….
