How to Freeze Apples With Lemon Juice


Apples are a healthy fruit that provide many important nutrients. They can be eaten alone or used in several different recipes for meals and desserts. Apples are typically a summer fruit but by properly freezing them, they can be readily available all year long. Freezing is an effective and healthy way to preserve apples for future use in dishes such as apple pies and apple turnovers. Lemon juice on the apples will prevent browning and darkening so when you are ready to use your apples, they will still look appealing.
