do you believe in magic?

So the other day my friend Dana gave me a little suggestion that changed everything for me.

Or… not quite everything. But it definitely changed my fruit serving capabilities. :)

Cheesy infomercial begins now.

 

Brown apples. We all hate them. They look gross, rotten, kids won’t touch them. Add a little lemon juice to preserve the colour and it changes the flavour. Have you ever wanted to serve a lovely fruit tray with apple slices that stay white? Prepare to be amazed. Keeping your apples white is as simple as this:

 

Soak them in salt water.

 

As in… maybe a tbsp of salt in a bowl of water, swish around, let sit for approx a minute? Rinse off and serve, or don’t serve. Throw them in a ziplock bag and in the fridge or a lunch box for a few hours and then serve. STILL WHITE AND FRESH LOOKING. Tastes like apple, not apple splashed with bitter lemon juice!

 

I actually am excited about this. I’ve been wowing my friends all week, first asking them if they know the secret to keeping their apples fresh, then I dramatically whip a bag of apples out of the fridge and say, “I sliced these 3 hours ago!” and they are always like, “SHOW ME HOW!!” Or something like that anyway. My world is very small. Soak the apples, it really does work.

    This rocked my world! Now when I’m asked to make apple dip for the 7 billionth time, I won’t grimace at the thought of spending the first half of a party cutting apples by myself in the kitchen!

    I always did the lemon juice technique. I will definitely have to try this now!
    Thanks! :)
