Here's something you'll find in pretty much every Huon Valley household, but I don't recall ever seeing in Sydney: the apple peeler, corer and slicer, also known as the apple slinky machine, as that's what the apple looks like after processing with this contraption. Ah, the slinky. I loved sending mine down the stairs as a kid.
Last weekend I bought a couple of kilos of different types of apples from the ladies on the Stoney Banks Orchard stall at the Franklin Market. Sturmer, Pink Lady, Gala, Mutsu and more, $2.50 a kilo. They are so juicy that I ended up covered in apple spray while turning the handle on the peeling machine! Crunchy and delicious. If you are in Hobart, keep an eye out for them at Salamanca Market each Saturday.
