There are other good fruits. At Mary’s house the gadget that helps to slice apples into six even pieces is hard for the kids to manage – they can’t quite get the cuts all of the way through the apple and the core to pop out. I can’t do it either, but I have learned to poke the pieces out – and they do look beautiful on a plate – all lined up with uniform pieces.

I would not have thought that the skin would be a highly prized items, with fights about who would get the next apple peeling.
A long string was as much fun to eat as spaghetti.
