Preventing the browning of fruit when preparing the night before.

I would like to cut up my apples, grapes, and pears tonight, but I know they'll brown before the party tomorrow. However, the only remedies of that, that I know of are Lemon or Lime juice due to the acidity. However, I don't have either of those. A friend suggested Ginger Ale and I don't have that either. Does anyone know of any other ideas?

It's not that big of a deal, but I did want to save some time.

  • Go buy some lemons or lemon juice, RozPearcy is right that's the only one I've heard of.

  • Any citrus soda - 7up, sunkist, squirt
    orange juice
    ascorbic acid

  • Crush up a vitamin C tablet and miix it in. It's actually the Vitamin C not the acidity that prevents browning.

  • You can just put them in water too.
