Kitchen Tips Tuesday: Apples

February 25, 2014

Granny smith coupée en rondelles

Apples are the perfect on the go snack. They are healthy, low in calories, high in fiber and vitamins.
I prefer to eat them sliced. Somehow, crunching into a big ole apple, juices running down my chin, just doesn’t seem very polite, or professional. Cutting them “onsite” isn’t always possible, and cutting them in advance often leads to gross, brown slices.
Once I saw this trick, I had to share it!
Wash and slice the apple into large pieces, and then reassemble it, putting a rubber band around it to keep it intact. The flesh is not exposed to the air, therefore it doesn’t oxidize.

This concept should also work on avocados. Just leave the seed in and band it back together. Genius!
