Apples are truly an ideal fruit. They offer a nice crispness when you bite into one, followed by a mouthful of sweet juice. But we also know that you care a little less for apples after they start to brown.
As soon as oxygen touches the inside of an apple, the colour gradually starts to change, and it seems as though nothing can stop it. Sure, you could use lemon juice or sugar to slow down the process, but even these tricks can’t completely prevent your apple from browning. And although the taste of an apple doesn’t change once it turns brown, it’s hard to shake that nagging feeling that it’s starting to rot. And then, suddenly, you just don’t feel like eating it anymore. But isn’t that such a waste of food? How can you even consider throwing that brown apple away when there is, in fact, a way to make stop them from turning brown in the first place?
We finally know how to stop your apple from browning once you slice it and all you need is a rubber band. Simply slice your apple, put the pieces of the sliced apple back together and keep them in place with a rubber band. This way, you’ll have those fresh, non-rotting apple slices happily waiting for you when you eat them later.
Now you can reach into your lunchbox and pull out a beautiful apple that’s all sliced and ready to eat. We’ve got your back. The next time you cut up an apple before you want to eat it, whether it be for lunch or for a party, you don’t need to face the dreaded, browning apple.
