Back to school for our neck of the woods is next week. And back to school means back to making and packing lunches. I always try to include a fruit in Mac and Caroline’s lunches, and apples happen to be their favorite. But, the catch to this is that neither Mac nor Caroline like to bite a whole apple – they like it to be cut in sections. I don’t mind the extra step, but by the time their lunch comes around, the cut apples have browned.
Enter today’s Quick Tip Friday.
The solution to this is really pretty simple. And Quick…
Take a bowl and fill it half way with water. Pour about a tablespoon of lemon juice in the water. Slice the apple and let soak in the lemon water for about a minute or two. Then take out and put in baggie or container. The acidity from the lemon juice keeps the apples from browning, and diluting the lemon juice with water keeps the fruit from tasting sour.
When it’s time to eat the apples, they look as though they were just sliced.
Enjoy today’s Quick Tip Friday!
