Keep Sliced Apples Fresh With Ginger Ale We usually don't pack sliced apples in our school lunches for the simple reason that apples, when sliced and exposed to air, turn an unsightly shade of brown. That has changed since we tried one of the many apple-slice-saving ideas out there - soaking them in ginger ale for 10 minutes (I also hear any lemon-lime soda will also work).
How to clean fruits and veggies: soak them in a ratio of vinegar and water to help remove toxins and pesticides. Leave them soaking for up to an hour, longer with non-organic apples. No, it doesn't change the taste.
