OK, advice needed: I want to make dried apple chips. (Do you have any idea what bagged "apple chips" sell for these days? They're worth, like, more than gold.)

Anyway, they are incredible easy to make. Recipes abound all over the Internet— most suggest dusting them with cinnamon and sugar before drying them out.

BUT I need to buy an apple corer. Anyone out there have recommendations? I've been looking at these, where you just press down on the apple and it slices and cores it at the same time.

OTOH, there are these round ones where essentially it slices the core out and leaves the slicing up to you. These are the ones I'm mostly considering, since for apple chips, you have to slice the apple about ⅛ inch thick. Here's an example of such a corer:

Thanks for any suggestions.

+Craig Froehle +Morio Murase  My only problem with that Calphalon one is that the slices would be too thick. So I would have to slice them again anyways. I love the idea of the industrial one, but I like to be more involved with my food (gives me a reason to practice my cursing). The tubular corers might be better for drying. Once the core is out, maybe I could use a mandoline veggie slicer for even cuts. One recipe said just to slice the entire uncored apple crosswise (laterally) and pop out the seeds leaving the core intact. That way you get that kind of cool star shape in the middle of the slices. I'm no chef, but that kind of stuff appeals to me.

I just can't stop laughing:

"It gave her short little Barney arms since it was nearly at her elbows,'' said the girl's mother.
 
I never did trust that purple bastard

A 15-year-old girl in Alabama put on a Barney head as a prank, couldn't get it off, and had to be rescued by firefighters.

"It gave her short little Barney arms since it was nearly at her elbows,'' said the girl's mother.
"The head was closing in on me,'' Darby Risner told AL.com. "It was like a stuck-in-a-small-place-and-can't-get-out-panicking."

Forget cinnamon. What you really want on your oatmeal is a teaspoonful of sugar, maybe a drop of vanilla, a handful of fresh blueberries and a great dash of Habanero powder. Cinnamon is cliché

I saw this cloud yesterday. On Caturday. It changed even as I fumbled for my camera, but when I first saw it, it looked EXACTLY like a fairly finished cloud sculpture of a cat's head.

I really don't know anything about Islam. But deep inside, this is what I have always suspected about Islamic fundamentalism that it is neither Muslim nor Islamic, any more than Christian fundamentalism is in any way Christian.
 
I'm surprised it took me this long to notice it, but:

The #DAESH (IS, #ISIS, whatever you wanna call them) flag? It has an egregiously flagrant mistake (to Arab readers):

It says:
"الله رسول محمد "

Meaning "God, Mohammad's messenger".

That's so wrong on such a great level it's not even funny. Further more, it demonstrates that DAESH are not a Muslim group. Or probably even middle eastern, for that matter.

Because if they were, someone would have told them it's supposed to be:
"محمد رسول الله"

Or: "Mohammad, messenger of God".

As in: "There is no God but god, and Muhammad is the messenger of God"? You know, the core tenet of Islam? The one we pledge to? The one some people are presuming DAESH to be doing?

It's like whomever's actually behind DAESH hired the same team as Battlefield 3, who committed the same error of not verifying their translation before shipping their stupid, stupid crap.

If you needed any one tiny proof that DAESH is neither Muslim nor Arabic, this is pretty much what you need to look at.

Because the only people who firmly believe in the "God is Mohammad's messenger" narrative are reich-wing white supremacists.

It's no surprise that these nut jobs have no relation to the Muslims I know. But that they are so ignorant as to screw up their flag and still not notice (cos they're still using it) that is a surprise.
