I've never done that - but dd likes me to squeeze a bit of lemon juice over her apples sometimes when she brings them to school.  I usually do if we've got extra lemons or bottled lemon juice around.  I'd guess that's the same - it lessens browning (and adds a nice tartness as well).  shrug.gif 


Does the salt water really affect the taste, though?  It sounds like a peculiar combo of flavors..

The slices will get a little brownish if you cut them and then don't eat them for hours, but I've never thought that it mattered. We don't soak them in anything here.

A mom mentioned she puts the cut apples for kids snacks in salt water to prevent oxidization. What is that about?

Is it necessary?
