Keep Apples or Pears from browning …. will never buy prepackaged slices again!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Labor day weekend!!  I have some great posts to share this week.   I couldn’t decide which one to share first but decided to go with this money saving tip.   Tomorrow I have a wonderful roast recipe to share so be on the lookout! 

I am one of those that if fruit and vegetables are already cut up, I am more likely to eat them.  So I just love that this pin worked and now can make my own snack bags!   So quick to do too!!!  


Keep Apples or Pears from browning:


All you need are apples of your choice and a bottle of 7 up or Sprite.  

We have loved our Pampered Chef Apple Corer for years and is so perfect for this …

I then slice the pieces one more time …

Soak in a bowl filled with Sprite or 7 up for 3-5 minutes.  (I did 5 min.)



Pour out soda and lay out on a paper towel to dry.  I turned mine over after a minute or two to dry both sides really well.

Put in baggies and get out as much air as possible … I used the Ziplock snack size baggies and made three bags out of two apples.



This blogger has 4 ways to keep apples and pears from browning.  Two of my sister in laws told me that lemon water works too so will try next.  Thanks to the blogger for her tip!!
