A simple way to keep apple slices from turning brown in your lunch box overnight or for days!




Dissolve the salt into the cold water and stir well.  Add the apples and immerse them in the solution.

Soak apples for 5 minutes, then drain away the water.  Do not rinse them.

Package your apples into individual or one large airtight container then store in the refrigerator up to 5 days.


You can do this on a smaller scale with just one apple as well, just reduce the water and salt in half.
