An easy tip for coating chopped apples.
When you use chopped apples in baking, you don’t really have to worry about them turning brown because they’re inside the baked goods and into the oven in a matter of minutes. But, it’s a different story when you’re using them in some type of salad that needs to chill and won’t be eaten right away. Maybe you throw them in as they are or you might coat them in lemon, orange or pineapple juice.
Have you ever thought of using lemon lime soda? I learned this tip at a Pampered Chef party years ago and have been using it ever since. Just put the chopped apples in a colander, pour the soda over top and drain well. The amount of soda is up to you, but if I have a few cups of chopped apples to cover, I use a whole can of soda. There’s no strong taste left on the apples like when you use fruit juice. You can even use store brand lemon lime soda if you want….the outcome is still the same.
With apple season not too far away, let me know if you have any other apple tips.
Speaking of chopped apples, you should give my Sour Cream Waldorf Coleslaw a try. My family loves it.
