>> but we like that.

>> so we've got a lot there. can you stir this? we can eat after, i promise. let's get the apples ready. i want to show you an easy way to core an apple . i think apple corers are a nightmare. they never go down the apple straight. what i like to use is a melon baller .

>> cinnamon lee.

>> such a sad story. his surgery turned out well. they found his other ball, it was in his stomach. anyway.

>> if you don't know what we're talking about, you're fine. anyway, continue.

>> about five minutes, until they get nice and tender.

>> dump it in.

>> the warmth of this will be no problem.

>> come on.

>> look at that.
