I've done this for berries. Will now do it for all fruits! (Works! My strawberries usually would last only a week, but after this they lasted 2.5!!) Cleaning fruit - fill sink with water, add 1 C. vinegar, mix. Add all fruit and soak for 10 minutes. Water will be dirty and fruit will sparkle with no wax or dirty film. Great for Berries too--keeps them from molding. #goodtoknow

Apple & Pear Slices That Don't Brown

Soak apple slices for 5 minutes in a solution of 1 cup water and 1 tablespoon lemon juice. Drain and store in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Apples will stay crispy and fresh all week. Great for lunches and after school snacks. **Update: 2 Tbsp. per 1 c. works better.
