Apple Puzzle

Last summer, I shared the super cool Magic Message Bananas as a neat way to add a little fun to your child's snack time or lunch box.  Well, thanks to the ever-inspiring Pinterest, I found this clever idea for apples.  Not only is it a fun presentation, but it makes it much easier for a loose-toothed kid to enjoy a whole apple at lunchtime!

Check it out...



Such a simple solution, but it's been a big hit with my apple-loving girls.

All you need is an apple, a sharp knife 
and a thick rubber band.



Make a cut to the side of the stem.



Then make three more cuts on each side of the stem to cut your apple slices away from the core.


Put your rubber band around the middle of the apple and your fruit puzzle is ready to go!


Note:  While this technique doesn't completely prevent the slices from browning, it does seem to really reduce it  (Plus, with a cool "puzzle", the kids don't even seem to notice it)

  1. I think that if you let some fresh lemon juice drip on the inside and then "assemble" the apple with the rubber band, browning will be even less if not non-existent! :)

  5. My dad used to make me apple puzzles when I was little and put them in my lunches. I think he got he idea from Martin Yan, who had a local cooking show in California, Yan Can Cook. Something like that always made me smile and feel special. I look forward to next year when my oldest goes to kindergarten and I can do fun things in her lunch.

  22. También puede visitar una tienda de ladrillo y mortero de Michael Kors o su sitio web y comprar directamente un bolso Michael Kors desde allí. Usar un bolso de Michael Kors les permite a los demás reconocer que el habitante urbano educado toma la moda realmente con seriedad. Los bolsos de hombro son particularmente refinados y elegantes.

    En vacker konstnärlig skapelse av vävt läder, som ger ett skalskaligt utseende - liknar en snakeskin eller fiskhud, linjer utsidan av påsen. Läderens bältros är små läderringar. Det finns också gyllene accenter på väskan. Slutresultatet är svagt liknar kedjepost.
