  1. Has anyone tried dipping apples in 7-Up or Sprite to prevent them from turning brown? I tried one of them and it worked great (can't remember if it was the 7-Up or Sprite) My question is does it matter which one you use or will they both work???

    I think they're both supposed to work. It's because of the citric acid in the pop.

    Any lemon lime soda will work, even the cheapest generic.

    ... and it keeps the apples tasty (not like salt or the other chemicals in bottles) YUK!!
     
  5. mmm I keep forgetting that tip. Yeah- I think I've heard both work for sure.

    I'm thinking some sprite or 7-up in the kitchen spritzer instead of lemon juice...

    You can also use regular orange juice. I suggested 7-up/Sprite to a host and she said she always mixes the cut fruit with orange juice, drains it and serves both the fruit AND the juice :)

    Pineapple juice works, too. I generally choose whichever seems to go best with what I'm using the apples in or on.

    Why does it work?

    Because the acid in the juice reacts with the sugars in the fruit and prevents them from oxidizing (turning brown when exposed to air).

    This has been another useless fact from the brain of Ann.
    :D

    Great, now you've taken up more space in my very limited memory! Thanks, uh, what was your name again?
     
  12. LOL!! My thoughts exactly. Now new info to remember that's more important than the name to taught us.

    I have used both and I think they both work. Lemon jucie also works and I used it on sliced banana's also. They looked great. Sherry

  15. Any soda that is clear. Don't use coke or pepsi! (I actually had a customer try it!!!) I like using soda rather than lemon juice because I found that the lemon juice can make the apples bitter and the soda keeps them tasting sweet.
     
  16. That's exactly why I use pop instead of lemon juice. I also use orange juice because it's sweeter.

    I've never tried orange juice, but I'm sure it's great too. I use Sprite, because that is what my family likes and what we usually have at home.
