I know many people would love to be able to send a sliced apple in their children’s school lunch, but because they will turn brown in a couple hours, most of us don’t do it. Here is a way to slice an apple and keep it together in a way that will slow down the browning process to allow your child to eat it at lunch.
What you need:
— Clean Apple
— Apple Corer/Slicer
— Rubber Band
What to do:
— Use a apple corer/slicer to core/slice up the apple.
— Keep all the slices (and core) together and secure with a rubber band.
Keeping it together with the rubber band will slow the oxidation process which causes an apple to turn brown.
I know that this will be a hit with my kids as they love apples and it is such a great item to send in their lunch. Very filling and very good for them. You can also send a little cup of dip. Kids LOVE to dip food. Here is a recipe for an easy Apple Dip you can make at home with cream cheese and brown sugar.
This is also a great idea for picnics, road trips, or just about anytime you need to pack food. I know you can buy those little bags of apple slices at the store, but I don’t like spending the extra money. This will work just as well for just the cost of an apple.
