How do you core an apple for filling?
Wash and dry the apples and place the apples on the cutting board. Use a pairing knife and place the tip of the pairing knife roughly 3/8ths of an inch on one side of the stem of the apple.
Push the pairing knife into the apple and rotate it around the top to cut out the core and stem while forming a hole in the middle of the apple. Discard the apple core once removed.
