Here’s a Fun and Quick DIY Tip for the day! Did you know that you can use Lemon Lime Soda to keep your Apples from Browning??? I really, really Hate Buying those little bags of Apples at the Grocery Store because I just can’t stop wondering what they put on them to keep them from turning brown and I think they taste funny ;( My little girl loves Apples and keeps asking for an Apple in her lunch for School so I did a little research and it turns out a little Sprite or Lemon Lime Soda will stop your apple slices from going brown!
Just Soak your Apple Slices in Lemon Lime Soda for 4-5 Minutes and Remove to stop the Browning Process!
I have to admit I was super skeptical with this one but I tested it and left the apples sitting out for several hours 6-7 hours? The apples weren’t brown at all, I also put half the apple in the fridge and it also stayed fresh. Best of all not chemical taste on the apples, you really can’t taste the Lemon Lime Flavor at all. I think you could do these ahead of time for a party and one can of sprite would go a long way because it could be re-used, you really just need enough to cover the apple slices, you don’t need an entire bowl like I have shown here.
My mom has told me for years to put lemon juice on apples, but it’s hard to figure out how to cover them completely without using a lot of lemon juice, you can also use some lemon juice in water to keep the apples from browning. I just happened to think this was so super creative and I was surprised at how well it worked! Now I can create my own little bags of Fresh Apples in the Fridge for my kids to snack on.
