Keep Sliced Apples Fresh With Ginger Ale ~ so they won't turn brown soak them in ginger ale for 10 minutes... and the apples still taste like apples! (I also hear any lemon-lime soda will also work)
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. LOVE THIS IDEA!
Green Tea Soda: 8 bags green tea; 4 cups boiling water; 3 Tbsp. honey or sugar ; 4 cups assorted fresh fruit, such as white or regular nectarine wedges, lime slices, blueberries, and/or raspberries; 1 liter plain or flavored sparkling water, such as raspberry, strawberry, or peach, chilled; 2 Tbsp. snipped fresh mint or 8 to 10 mint sprigs (also might work with white tea)
