How Do you Keep Fruit From Turning Brown in a Fruit Tray
Here is how to keep your fruit from turning brown in a fruit tray. Slice your fruits, like apples, pears, etc. Coat them in lemon, pineapple, or orange juice and let them soak for around 20 minutes. Take them out and then assemble your fruit tray. You can do the same with a lemon-lime soda. The acidic juice can help prevent the darkening of fruit.
How Long Does A Fruit Tray Last
Once you are done serving up your fruit, take all the leftover fruit and place in a sealable plastic bag and store in the fridge. Your fruit can last around 3 to 5 days when stored properly. If it begins to soften, become mushy, or browns, toss.
