Stop apple slices from turning brown, infuse them with doTERRA Essential Oils!
Cooking time: 5 minutes
Resting time: 30 minutes
1 red apple
1 drop of food grade essential oil
Cut apples into desired pieces. I prefer to keep the skin on, and I slice the apples quite thick, making about 3 slices per quarter. They look better with the contrasting skin colour when served.
Place cut apples in a glass bowl. Cover with cold water (fridge temperature).
Add 1 drop per whole apple of food grade essential oil. I love using doTERRA Lemon or doTERRA OnGuard blend for the cinnamon & clove work perfectly with apples. Other citrus such as Grapefruit, Wild Orange, or Bergamot are also delicious.
Cover and keep refrigerated for 30 minutes (maximum 1 hour). Do not soak for too long or the apple flesh will go mushy!
Drain the apples. They are ready to eat. Their flesh will be delicately infused with the essential oil flavour, and they will remain looking fresh for longer!
Why not drink the drained water? You will benefit from the fruit’s nutrients that have gone into the water and the essential oil.
