Full Answer

Use a swivel peeler or an apple peeler equipped with a core slicer to cut the apples into smaller pieces. Fill a bowl with water and approximately 1 tablespoon of lemon juice. Dip the apple slices into this mixture, and place the fruit on a plate or baking tray. Freeze the slices for several hours prior to securing the apples in a plastic bag or storage container.
