On the Wonder Of Apples and a Jazz Apple Slicer Giveaway

A few weeks ago I wrote a post about iconic prizes in comping, one of which is the famous Jazz Apple Slicer, which is one that had eluded me up to now. I tweeted the post to the promoters, including @JazzAppleUK and they got in touch to thank me and to offer me a Jazz Apple Slicer of my very own! Yes, they are that lovely, and not just to me. Did you know that The Jazz Apple Foundation have given away £10,000 to good causes promoting healthy living? But their generosity doesn’t stop there; they have also given me a heap of Jazz Apple Slicers to give away to you lovely folk. See below for details of how to enter. If you would like to find out more about Jazz Apples click here to go to their website– there is a great kids section with apple facts and puzzles. 

The Apple Slicer is awesome; I do so love a kitchen gadget! It’s so quick and the boys love it- so apple consumption in our house has taken a sharp rise as they keep asking me to chop them an apple! And why not- we really should eat more apples! 

Reasons To Get Excited About The Humble Apple

  • Apples are super healthy. They are low GI, rich in antioxidants and vitamins and also contain fibre and pectin which can help to lower cholesterol. 
  • British Apples are in season now. Did you know Jazz Apples are grown in the UK, along with other locations around the world? You can find out about some of the UK growers here.
  • Apples are the taste of Autumn, deeply connected with childhood memories of Apple bobbing and toffee apples.
  • Apples are endlessly versatile- crunch them whole, juice them, grate them on salad, pop them in a pie or crumble, chop them on your porridge, slice them into a pork casserole, or purée and add to an appletini! Click here for some mouth watering apple recipes.
  • With an Apple Slicer, your apple can be prepped in seconds and ready to pop into whatever recipe you like (or straight into your mouth as a tasty snack).

  1. I like apple cakes and I also love juicing apples together with carrots and lime for a super vitamin shot in the morning.


  2. I like apples raw, baked with raisins, in crumbles and pies and as puree on top of macaroni cheese (don’t knock it till you’ve tried it!)
