Prevent Apple Slices from Turning Brown

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by Kats Mom

A tip I read somewhere (?) recently. As I don't like the citrus tang added to some recipes by using lemon juice so this is the method I used on Thanksgiving so that I could chop my apples for the stuffing ahead of time. Also used it for the apples slices that went with the dip. The slices sat on the table for hours and did not change color.

This will actually work with almost ANY soda; it's the carbonic and phosphoric acids that are doing the trick. In fact, it might even work with plain soda water, just from the acidity of the dissolved carbon dioxide. Good tip!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 apple, sliced (or chopped)
  • 12 cup carbonated lemon-lime beverage (soda)
