If we could have sourced mini apples this would have been just super cute. But as much as we tried, I had no idea where to begin with finding such a thing and as we were working with Manjimup producers, we went with the amazing Bravo apples and just picked out the smallest ones we could find. It ends up being about how many you can fit into the Thermomix bowl and surprisingly, we managed to get up to around 7 or 8, so just go with as many as you can based on the size apples you can get.
The big trick is not entirely coring the apple, so go up from the base of the apples, as far as possible without actually removing the very top piece that holds the stalk. I hope that makes sense, post me some pics, I would love to see your results!
