I love to make apple pie but hate peeling the apples. What can I do to speed up this dreaded task?
Start by choosing the right apples: Granny Smith and other firm varieties are easiest to peel. Also, make sure your tools are up to the job. Instead of using the flimsy metal peelers they sell at the grocery store, invest in a solid, easy-to-grip model like the OXO Good Grips Swivel Peeler, $7, cooking.com. Then, peel away from you, working from top to bottom.
