Welcome to my new follower "Kerfuffle" 




A few weeks ago I bought this Apple Peeling Machine from the Car Boot Sale for £1.00.









A few of you lovely people asked if I could show how it works so here is a little video of me testing it the other day.




Sorry you will hear the tv in the background.

    3. Thanks I am off to make crumble now. Not worried about the slices as it is going to see down anyway.

  2. Wow, what an impressive machine. What a great find and bargain price. Perfect for this time of year with the abundance of apples.

    1. Yes everyone is selling off bags of apples from their trees at the carboot.

  3. That's brilliant! I think I'd find myself peeling apples just for the fun of it. A bargain at that price too. X

  4. We bought one of those last year.... it cost us £20. Some apples peel fine but the others broke up into chunks.I wonder if it is down to the variety of apples

    1. I have found it doesn't work so well on larger ones.

  5. You must eat apples by the cart load to buy one of these. It's not so much the cost, but we'd simply not have room in the cupboards for it! I like apples, but not so much to warrant a gadget like this, unless I was going to bake/cook/turn into juice, on a commercial scale. But for £1 ... well, even I might be tempted!!!

    1. It is ideal for me as I buy lots of reduced apples and also people are selling huge bags at the Car boot sales, Apple pies, crumbles for the freezer and good for making batches of Apple Sauce all the things I make, and for only a £1.00 I thought why not.

  6. I was so glad I had the same gadget that you have last year when a friend gave us a big box of apples. They were only the size of maybe a billiard ball so that was a lot of peeling. It would have taken for ever by hand. My husband did all the peeling and I made the apple sauce, it was delicious. I didn't do this, but I've read that if you are doing a lot of apples you can make beautiful apple jelly from all the peel, cores etc.

    1. It does certainly make light work of it.

  7. Yes, there you are! lol
    Of course, owning one myself I can firmly state how shockingly addictive this machine is to use. Also, I'm hoping to start using the peelings and cores for making apple wine next year.

    1. Great idea, Jan mentioned the peel and cores for apple jelly.

  8. Apple peelers are handy as a pocket on a shirt, especially handy when canning, drying, freezing or making large quantities of pies, cakes, jelly's, etc. What a great price you paid!
