Round, sound, and tender, inside and rine,
One pin's prick their vertue show :
They've liquor by their weight, you may know”

I was perusing a local store’s kitchenware department a couple of days ago ,and came across the gadget area. There quite a number of different tools on the market that help to prepare fruit for the table.
Gadgets such as the use of a 'pin' in the 17th century quote above.

|The zest, the skin , the core and flesh of selling|
Come taste and buy before you try SAMPLING
