Keeping Apples from Browning

With all of the lunch boxes getting packed this week and kids starting to go back to school. I don't know about your child, but mine loves sliced apples for a healthy snack. And what child wants to eat brown apples. It is just not the same!

I just read a great article on preserving your cut fruit on Lifehacker.com. One of the things they discussed was how to keep your apples from turning brown when you cut them.


I have always put a little lemon juice on the apples and it has worked pretty well, but not for long term.

This article says you slice them underwater, and store them in water, until you are ready to serve. I tried it and it works like a charm. This prevents the enzymes from getting in contact with the oxygen which turns them brown.


Another helpful tip is that granny smith apples are an apple that brown less and red delicious are the fastest to brown.


Hope this was a helpful tip. I would love to hear from you any suggestions or tips!
