First; great recipe it is almost identical to mine. NOW the fun part.I apologize folks I am almos 80 and I love to see the youngsters getting into it. Some of you folks don't really know the "OLDE" words for things. Hey, I had to learn as a kid. "CHEF assig", PARING and peeling are one in the same. My MoM used to refer to her little do everything knife as a paring knife. Aren't you glad you got some of us OLDE duffeses around. Keep cooking and enjoyin. Cap'n Jack the Firehouse cook.
