Your fruit salads and apple topped dishes will no longer look yellow and unappetizing
On the holiday of the Apple Redeemer, apples are almost the main dish on the table. They are included in the recipes of many delicacies, desserts, cuts and salads. But, unfortunately, the crushed pieces of apples literally turn dark before our eyes in a matter of minutes.
In fact, they are no less: in contact with air, this is how iron manifests itself, which apples are rich in. This is good for health, but the appetizing and attractive appearance of the treat is often lost.
Telegraph decided to share with you some useful life hacks on what to do with chopped apples so that they don’t turn dark immediately while you do the rest of the produce.
How to process apples so that they do not dance when cut: tips for housewives
- Lemon juice. A well-known trick is to sprinkle lemon juice on sliced apple slices. For this, both freshly squeezed and canned juice will do. Lime juice is also good.
- Acidified water. If the potatoes themselves are already acidic, this concentration can be reduced by removing lemon juice or citric acid with boiling water. Apple slices are dipped in acidified water for a minute and thrown in a colander.
- Salt solution. Unexpected preservative for sweet apples, but also quite reliable. It is suitable for apples that are prepared in a salad. Make a solution of a teaspoon of salt in a liter of water and dip the slices in it for 5 minutes, then rinse well with clean water.
- Soda. The composition of sweet carbonated drinks includes citric acid. If you soak apple slices for 3-4 minutes, they will stay fresh and tasty for a long time.
