How to keep apple slices from turning brown!
If you dunk the sliced apples in orange juice, you can put them in a kid's lunch bag and they don't turn brown! ............ A great way to take the core out of apple slices!! A cute healthy valentines day snack and another cute thing to do with young ones would be to use the cookie cutter to cut shapes without the peel I've also used sprite or club soda!
Those packages of pre-sliced apples you can buy at store are great for a healthy snack on the go but the price can add up. Make your own by slicing apples, soak in cold water for 3-5 minutes, then soak in a lemon-lime carbonated soda (such as 7-up or sprite) for 3-5 minutes. Divide into snack size portions and store in Ziploc bags in the fridge. The lemon-lime soda will keep the apples from browning and make them last longer.
