Did you know that the average person wastes 30 percent of every apple they eat? If you throw away the apple core, you’re one of those people — because the apple core DOESN’T EXIST.
The apple core isn’t real, writes James Hamblin on The Atlantic. And there’s no reason to discard it. “There is a thin fibrous band, smaller in diameter than a pencil and not bad to the taste,” he explains. “If you eat your apple vertically, it is not noticeable.”
Don’t believe him? Watch him prove it.
And if you need more convincing to try it his way, just think of the money you’ll save. Hamblin estimates that if each of us eat an apple a day at $1.30 per pound, we’re wasting $42 per person per year—a total of $13.2 billion annually.
How do you eat your apples? And if you’ve been eating the core all this time, why didn’t you enlighten the rest of us sooner?!
