All the fuss over showing how to peel veggies and fruit. Who forces you to watch? Keep in mind there are new cooks viewing this site daily! Hug somebody, you'll feel better. ( :

There were no ads when I vewed this. Apples are easiest to peel if you cut the apple into quarters. You can then easily remove the core and the peel and slice into your pie crust. From a Hunter apple pie maker! My parents loved to travel to the mountains about 90 miles away and pick up apples already picked, sometimes buying a half bushel or a whole bushel of apples! (A bushel of apples is a lot!) Then come home and make homemade apple sauce and apple pies. Having a freezer, it was my parents' practice to build the pies and cook them about half the usual time, then wrap in foil and freeze them. When you want a pie for dessert, put it in the oven to reheat and finish baking. They usually froze 12 pies per season.

It would be nice to be able to watch one of the how to videos without the constantly freezing nevermind the ads what are constantly interrupting and getting in the way. For some of us going to pay the premium is not an option so I guess just cancelling Jap is the only other option

I don't care for the ads either, I always found the music to be distracting when I wanted to look for a particular recipe, not to mention all the crazy pop-up which carry a whole host of other tech problems for your computer!
Plus, I use JAP almost every day and have been a member since it's beginning, so I joined the Premium membership ($10.00 a year) for zero ads and silent bliss. But, I do understand that the ads allow JAP to offer the site to those who don't want to pay.....ergo.....ads

I thought it was going to show some different, more efficient, way of peeling these. But it's the same way I've been doing them for years. The only exception is, I use my vegetable peeler on potatoes, too, instead of a knife now, because it doesn't waste as much potato. And I rarely eat apples, but when I do, I use a knife to peel them, IF I peel them.

You have to show a video on how to peel things? Really? Are your viewers that stupid? I think I'm done with this site.

Always bothers me to see people using a knife to peel anything with. So much waste.

The ads drive me nuts. Takes forever to see what I want to see because of all the ads popping up.

When butternut squash begins making an appearance at farmers markets and grocery stores, that means one thing. Fall is coming! Low in fat, filled with fiber, and high in vitamin...

As it sits in the fridge, I find that it becomes better in time.

This recipe was requested by my daughter, Shauna. I found the recipe in a cookbook and changed a few things to make it the way I like it. It's delicious!
