    2. Score a shallow V-shape incision in the apple skin, just enough depth so skin can be removed.

    3. Run the knife just under the apple peel (as if you peel apple skin normally), stopping at the base of the v-shape. The excess part will come off. If not, score a v-shape incision again until the excess part comes off.

    4. To prevent browning, immediately soak in salt water for 10 seconds, or till you finish preparing apple bunnies (you do not need to soak for a long time).
