Congratulations, you have found the home page of the UK’s National Apple Peeling Association (NAPA). Founded in September 2016 by ace apple-peeler Ben Bennetts, the aims of the association are to further the skill of divesting an apple of its peel in one fluid motion creating a single stranded peel using just regular household peelers. Download the rules of the competition here. If you succeed in reaching the 100 cm length, send authenticated evidence to me, Ben Bennetts, whereupon you will receive a signed copy of the coveted One Hundred Centimetre Certificate as shown here:
Coveted One Hundred Centimetre Certificate
… and your name will be entered in the National Apple Peeling Association’s Hall of Fame. Be the first entry!
Hang your certificate with pride either in the kitchen or in the living room. It is forbidden to hang in the toilet or garden shed.
Good luck in your attempt to secure this coveted award.
Founder and Chairman of the UK National Apple Peeling Association
Good News/Bad News Updates
Good news: We have a winner. Young Lottie Brandon, a 12-year-old from Divonne-les-Bains in France, has achieved an astonishing 136.5 cm single strand peel. Take a look here.
Bad news: Unfortunately, the Queen has not responded to my invitation four years ago to become the Patron of the UK National Apple Peeling Association. I assume she has had other things on her mind, what with problems with Andy, Harry and what’s-her-name. I am looking for another Patron.
