I had one lonely half of an apple on the counter and a dried and shrivelled up old lemon.
“You look like you would make a pair” I said to them. So I bagged them together and left the apple to moisten the lemon, hoping I might be able to get a knife through it someday.
A few somedays (three weeks?) later
I remembered the odd couple. The lemon was a little more supple and the apple tasted….wow – quite heavenly.
So slice a delicious apple, wipe each side with lemon juice, sprinkle it with lemon or orange peel , give it some time and see if you get the same surprise.
