Picture of How to core an apple (the fun way!)
Core an apple and make apple rings with just a knife. I have used apple corers in the past but they never seem to cut correctly, either leaving some of the core and seeds, or taking too much apple with it. This way you can get maximum appleage without any of the seeds.

Step 1: You will need: 1 apple and a knife

I like to use Golden Delicious apples as they have that wonderful SNAP and crispness. Use a knife with a rounded edge, not a pointed one like a steak knife.
The easiest way to core an apple ever: slice it in half vertically and use a spoon to scoop out around the core.

I'm munchin' while everyone else is still sawin'.

This also saves the maximum amount of apple for consumption. Unless you just eat the core, of course. But that's just weird.
Or... You could just get an apple corer?
Even better than using a spoon is to use a mellon baller, and balling out the little hemisphere of apple core. The mellon baller makes a really clean cut compared to the spoon.

Heh ... I discovered a similar technique myself a while back, slicing apples for pie. It's amazing how much easier it is to get more apple-flesh this way than the "usual" way.
