Yes, “an apple a day keeps the doctor away”, but who wants to dig into a bowl of fruit that no longer looks fresh? Unfortunately, in the time between slicing and serving, fruit can go from a lovely mix of crisp chunks to an unappetizing brown mess real fast.
So if you’re dicing apple or pears for a party, or carrying them to work – we’ve got the sweetest solution to your everyday problem. This clever kitchen hack will prevent your fruits from browning. Watch the video to believe it:
The trick is pretty simple, all you have to do is soak the fruit in a mixture of 1 part honey to 2 parts lemon juice. And voila, your fruit will stay fresh for up to 8 hours! Thanks to the citric acid and vitamin C in lime and peptide in honey, which help in slowing down the oxidation process. Dunk them for a few extra minutes, and they could even last all day!
