How to Prevent the Apples from Browning

This is a great snack to send to school to celebrate a birthday or to serve at a playdate. If you aren’t serving it immediately you’ll need to “treat” the apples with lemon juice to prevent browning. It’s simple: after you cut the apples squeeze a little bit of lemon juice on them and toss to coat. This will help the apples last longer without browning.
