I wanted to focus on one of my favorite fruits the apple. My personal favorite is the red delicious. So crisp and sweet….I’m starting to get hungry. Anyways, I wanted to talk about some of the products we have out for those apple lovers like myself.
The first one being the Progressive Wedge and Pop apple wedger. This is a nice little apple slicer because once you have sliced the apple you can flip it over put the top on it then pop it out. I know when I’m slicing an apple I always hated that you couldn’t cut it all the way through. It always had the skin on the bottom that prevent the complete cut. Progressive makes some wonderful gadgets and this is one of my favorites.
We also have the Norpro apple mate 1 apple corer / peeler. This Norpro apple peeler would be recommended to the canner or the pie baker. This wouldn’t be for your every day use. This product can also do potatoes.
Keep checking back soon because as the fall rolls around we will be adding more and more apple related products.

Orka Silicone Multi Level Steam Cooker/Steamer
is a simple cooking method that uses direct contact with steam to cook foods. There are many different types of steamers available from simple to complex, but they all work under the same basic principal. One simple method of steam cooking is heating a small amount of liquid (water, broth, wine etc.) in a pot to a simmer. Then placing a steaming basket containing the food to be cooked in the pot directly above the liquid and covering. The steam from the hot liquid is trapped in the pot circulating around the food and cooking it quickly.
The health benefits of steam cooking are that you don’t use oil, butter or fats to cook your food and because the food is not emerged in water or fried in a pan it doesn’t lose any of its nutrients. So, you retain the full, hearty flavors of your food without adding extra calories from fats and oils. Just adding 2 to 3 steam cooked meals a week to your diet can have astounding effects. The richer full flavor meals fill you up and satisfy your taste buds while consuming less calories and absorbing more nutrients helps your body burn away the fat.
Anyone that hand washes dishes knows how valuable a quality dish drying rack can be. You want one that helps you with this argues task not a bulky piece of junk that takes up a lot of space and has to be replaced every year. The problem is there are so many choices finding the right one for you can be difficult.
You might want to be economical and pick up the old-fashioned wire dish rack for about ten bucks. That’s fine, they serve their purpose and they are pretty durable. The thing is they take up a good bit of counter space, they don’t hold very many dishes and the little cup attachment for your flatware and utensils is ridiculously small. Also, after about a year they can get pretty banged up and some even start to rust, stain and collect odors.
