Sophie loves taking apples slices to school for a snack or in her lunch (because she can't eat a whole apple), but she gets frustrated because they are brown by the times she gets to them. So, the other day we did a little experiment and discovered a little trick to keep her apples from turning brown. Maybe you already know this, but I can never keep a good tip to myself - so here you go!
How to keep your apple slices from turning brown:
Slice your apple.
Soak them in orange juice for a few minutes.
They don't turn brown - and taste really yummy!
Don't forget to drink the orange juice when you are done. No wasting! ;)
I sliced a bunch ahead of time, soaked them, and put them in the fridge (in a baggy) overnight. They didn't turn brown! I've also left them soaking in OJ for a while in the fridge (in a bowl). Either way, you can't mess this up. The fun thing about the OJ is the flavor it adds to the apples. Yummy!
