New Slices on Fresh Fruit

I'm off work today and doing some odd jobs around the house but I wanted to share this tip with you.  You may already know this but if not then I think you will appreciate it.
When slicing apples or pears for snacking, slice them horizontally as in the photo above.  Not only is it easier to eat without getting the skin stuck in your teeth and juice dribbling down your chin, you actually get to eat more fruit.  The amount of core bits I have left is at least half of what a non-sliced core would leave.  And the slices are much easier to pick up and hold onto.  Also easier to spread peanut butter on if you are into that.
Now if I could only find a less sloppy way to eat a juicy peach or plum!

Jake always waits patiently for my apple core. He's the first dog I've had who likes to eat apples so I have to slice mine the old fashioned way!

Not only that, if you slice it that way, you get to see the cool "star" in the middle! I'm with you on plums and peaches, messy but oh so good.....

Who'd a thunk it? :-) You're so smart, and I'll do this from now on. And, that picture makes my mouth water.

Ok, I'm strange....peanut butter is ok I guess. Me? I love spreading Hershey's syrup on an apple slice.
