Mom and I both LOVE apples - she is a bit fussy though - she likes them peeled and cut up but the bags you buy in the store cost so much so she searched around on Pintrest and found a quick and easy way to make her own.
This is so simple and keeps the apples from turning brown, makes them juicy and they stay crunchy ! What is our trick - simple. Peel and core your favorite apple, cut into quarters and then slice each quarter into 4 slices - pop them into a zip lock bag and pour in some soda (about a 1/3 cup). Give it a good shake so all the apple slices get coated and that is it ! Keep them in the refrigerator and enjoy when ever you want them - they last 4-5 days but in our house they never last more than a few hours :)
Now we couldn't just post any old thing about them so in an endeavor to make sure this is a best foodible delight ever we have been experimenting with types of apples - it was a tough job but someone had to do it right :) We found the ones we like the best are the Gala apples followed by Braeburn, Honey Crisp and Red Delicious. We have also been experimenting with the flavors of soda and our number one favorite is the Cream Soda. If you just want a plain apple flavor Sprite is the best. You can use any flavor soda though - they all work, grape, pineapple, orange, ginger ale or lemon lime. We haven't tried it with a Coke or Pepsi flavor as Mom doesn't like those.
So there you go - a nice healthy snack.......Come on Mom - I am sure it is time for another apple break and they do say "an apple a day keeps the doctor away" - actually according to the news last night - we need two apples a day - YUM :)
