A Refreshing Apple Treat

I had this pinned for a little while and kept thinking, I need to give this a try ... I mean, heck, it's super easy and sounds GOOD, so what took me so long?


Them apples are called Pink Lady ... 

The thought of cutting up the apples into these thin slices.

Yes.

I have one of them apple corer/slicer thingys ... AT WORK. See, when I turned my boss on to Honey Crisps (it was the LEAST I could do for him) I sort of donated my apple slicer/corer thingy to the office ...

So finally, I stopped at got me another one the other day. $9.99. Forgot my stupid Bed Bath & Beyond 20% off coupon ... but I also found out I can take the receipt back with the coupon and they will give me 20% back ... excellent!



A few days later, I was still looking at the apples I had picked up earlier in the week and said, I need to just make this... and, um, YES, you should too! It's good ... and well, heck, loaded with vitamin C and all natural ingredients ... SCORE!!




All you need is TWO apple (or ONE would do if you wanted, but really, you will WISH you had two!), ONE medium size lemon (I had Costco sized, so I used half) and ONE orange (I had a smallish orange).

Slice the apple as thin as you can. Place apple in a sealable bowl. TIP: Use glass if possible, makes them so much colder.




Juice lemon and orange into small bowl or measuring cup and then pour directly over the apple slices. I've got one of these gadgets that works great on lemons and limes, and even smaller oranges.



Pretty nifty ... do yourself a favor and buy the metal one, skip the cheaper plastic one ...

cool gadget, make sure you put cut side down in the bowl part. Hubby still forgets!


juiced and ready

a few lemon seeds caught!



Toss the container in the fridge for an hour or so (you can go longer, I did)

Eat. Enjoy. BE PREPARED TO SHARE if someone takes a slice to taste ... ahem, that would be the boss :-)



Seriously, this is really really, REALLY good ... even my finicky receptionist who will eat nothing but her own home prepared food tried these and said "wow" ... I made this 4 days in a row last week to take to work and now I'm thinking these may be making an appearance at some poolside parties this summer!

Yes, the lemon and orange juice keep the oranges apples from turning brown ... beautiful! (This was corrected thanks to an anonymous comment! Thank you!)

  8. oh I love this idea. I've seen people put just lemon on their apples to keep them from browning, but then there's too much lemony flavor for me. I'll have to try it with the orange juice. Thanks for sharing on Foodie Friday

  10. Because I hate for people to have errors they are not aware of I thought I would let you know that you said "Yes, the lemon and orange juice keep the oranges from turning brown ... beautiful!" I don't know if you can correct it or even care but if you are not "up" on how apples turn brown that might be confusing. It sounds WONDERFUL! I wonder if you could add some lime juice too... hmmmmmmmmmm
