Use Lemon Juice to Keep Your Fruit from Browning

apple slices

My son likes to take apple slices to school for his snack but he doesn’t like opening his snack bag to find brown slices. I find that if I toss the apples in lemon juice before packing the apples will keep fresh. This works with most fruit – it keeps avocado, pears, bananas and other fruits from turning brown after they’re peeled and chopped.

The lemon won’t spoil the flavor. A little bit does the trick and you if you taste it at all it’s very faint.
