So recently I have been seeing all of these delicious pictures of fruit & fruit platters that people are creating.
Back in December we had a small get together for my mom’s birthday, so I decided that it would be a perfect time to create one of my own.
Although December is not the best time to create a fruit platter in Ohio, I think that it turned out pretty well.
I think I will do it again in the summer when more fruit is in season such as watermelon, cantaloupe, and more berries.
I was also only able to buy one kiwi at the store because it was the only ripe one in the entire store, bummer.
The picture below is the fruit that I used:
So I started chopping the apples, and I was still running around the house putting away things that were out of place, and then my grandparents stopped by. I stopped cutting the apples to chat with them for a moment & by the time I got back the apples were already turning brown.
Somewhere I had heard that putting some lemon juice on apples would help them not turn brown as fast.
FUN FACT: It works!
I juiced half a lemon and added about a half cup (or less) of water. I then dipped each apple slice in the water and the apples stayed fresh all evening!
& there you have it. Delicious and colorful fruit platters.
