COOK’S TIP: Keep apple slices from turning brown without changing the flavor. Dip them in lemon-lime soda.

NOTE: As a cool environmental experience with your grandkiddos, plant what is left over from the apple in the garden: Simmer apple peels on the stove with cinnamon and cloves, dig a hole, plant cores and add cooled apple peels for compost to put nutrients back into the soil.
