    I like to make a large bowl of fruit salad & leave it in the fridge to have as & when.

    Obviously the apples/pears etc go brown, is there anything I can put on it to stop it going brown?

    Will an airtight tub help?

    Lemon juice helps to stop it going brown.

    my friend sends her little one to school with a chopped up apple and she says a dash/squirt of lemon juice over it stops it.
    never tried it myself.

    or orange juice.. any citrus should do as it's the Vitamin C that stops it going brown..
    I think that the current mag says something about storing peeled celeriac with a squeeze of lemon over it to stop it browning..

    Does adding lemon juice affect the taste or flavour?

    When I do salads for packup the night before, I put chopped apple in and they don't go brown at all (which surprised me the first time I did it!), so an airtight tub may work!

    Hi B.B. lemon juice works well. I mix lemon juice with a bit of slimline tonic and use that as a juice for the fruit. It is delicious and takes the acidity off the lemon.

    Healthy eating, using SW as a guide.
    When I make fruit salad I use diet 7up and it seems to work just fine, so if you don't like the flavour of the lemon juice try a diet lemonade of some sort.
