How To Eat An Apple

  1. That's brilliant and resourceful.

    1. Mother nature's toothbrush! Also pretty good halved, cored, and baked with cinnamon and a pork roast or in the cavity of a roast duck...

        That's so true about the toothbrush.

      2. This topic seems.....familiar.

        1. I feel born again. I can't wait to grab a bag of apples and begin my new life for the very first time.

          1. I don't get it. What's stopping anyone from eating all of the apple (like I do) and still starting from the side?

              I eat the whole thing. Except for the stem.

              I'm waiting for the stemless apple (a la the seedless watermelon) so I can truly eat the "whole" apple.

                I don't get the fear of eating the seeds. In order to actually ingest any cyanide, you'd have to chew the fuck out of them, and I would think that most people who eat the core (along with the seeds) don't tend to do that. So the seeds pretty much pass through ya undigested.

                Maybe I just don't eat apples often enough to worry about this, but I know that my sister eats apples WHOLE (save for the stem) and has been doing so for 40 years without any ill effects.

                  I've never "chewed the fuck" (sounds enticing) out of anything. Gum maybe. Anyway, maybe she has built up a cyanide tolerance.

                    Well sounds like we all agree, then. Woot.

                  2. re: linguafood

                    I rarely, if ever, chew the seeds.

                    Much less "the fuck out of them".

                    My poop is evidence of that. I've looked.

                      You would have to eat about 18 apples at once, AND chew the seeds to a fine pulp to cause harm.

                        Yep. Which was my point from the day this thread started.
