Use Honey to Prevent Sliced Fruit from Browning

Most people use lemon or other citrus juice to keep sliced apples or pears from turning brown, but did you know that honey can keep sliced fruit from turning brown for even longer? According to YouTube channel “America’s Test Kitchen”, all you have to do is mix 2 tablespoons of honey with 1 cup of water and let your sliced fruit soak for as little as 30 seconds.

The sliced fruit can stay fresh for up to 24 hours if you soak the fruit for a few minutes. This process works because there is a compound in honey that prevents a fruits enzyme from starting the oxidizing process. Have you ever tried this trick out?
