Early device for peeling and coring apples.

I’m wondering if you can help me identify some sources/potential places to start in answering a question that’s been bouncing around my mind lately.

Given that what we think of as the inedible apple “core” is actually edible, I’m wondering how/why/where/when people started eating around and discarding the apple core.

I’ve been investigating the history of the fruit as well as the kitchen tools used to process it. I’d be very interested to learn any insight you might have about where else I should be looking.

Thanks so much!
